Children in care

Going into care

Being 'in care' means we'll find you somewhere else to live, not with your parents.

Your care plan

If you're in care, you'll have a care plan. Your social worker will write it for you.

Your review

Everyone who's in care will have a review every few months.

Your social worker

Your social worker is a really important person when you're in care. You can talk to them about stuff that's going on and how you're feeling.

Leaving care

Leaving care can be scary, but we'll help you so it goes as well as possible.
