Support for care leavers aged 21 to 25 with education and training

This guide is for young people who have left care. It tells you what support you may be entitled to with education and training when you are aged 21 and over.

It is written by the National Care Advisory Service (NCAS) based on joint work between the Young People’s Benchmarking Forum (YPBMF) and the National Leaving Care Benchmarking Forum (NLCBF).

We wanted to tell people about a change in the law, which means there may be extra support with education and training for care leavers up to their 25th birthday.

In this guide you will find information on what the law says you are entitled to.
