If you are an Eligible, Relevant or Former Relevant Care Leaver, your personal Advisers will talk to you about what support you need and record this information in your Pathway Plan.
Your Pathway Plan is all about the steps you need to take to help you confidently move into your adult life, your initial plan will be written before you are 16 years and 3 months old. If you are over 16 when you first come into care, it will be written within 3 months of this happening.
It sets out your needs, views, future goals and ambitions. It will think about the support you need from us and other services we may work with. The Pathway Plan covers many different areas, including:
- Education, Training and Employment
- Health and Development
- Independent Living Skills
- Family and Social Networks
- Financial support
- Further Support
- Ethnicity, Culture and Identity
- A Contingency plan
We will make sure we write your Pathway Plan with you and review it every six-months to keep it up-to-date. With your agreement, we may ask some of our partners to help us; this may include housing, education, health and any other service you may have worked with. This is to make sure your plan is the best it can be for you.
