Staying Put

Bedford Borough Council want to support you to make the step into independent living at the pace that is right for you. Discussions about the different options for your plans and accommodation will start happening before you turn 18 to make sure we are finding the best solutions possible.

Staying Put is an arrangement between you and your foster carers, which allows you to remain living with them until up to the age of 21 if everyone agrees this is the best plan. Bedford Borough Council has a policy for Staying Put arrangements, which outlines the process, requirements, finances and any implications.
