Care Experienced

Corporate Parenting responsibilities are there to help children and young people who are being supported and cared for by a local authority. This includes foster care, residential care, secure care, looked after at home (on Home Supervision Requirements) and formal kinship care. Our responsibility as a Corporate Parent can start when you are born until you leave care. If you were looked after on your 16th birthday you can get help and support up to your 26th birthday.
