CELCIS has launched a new resource to help care experienced young people find out more about continuing care. This has been produced by young people with experience of care, CELCIS, the Care Inspectorate and Clan Childlaw.
Continuing care means staying with your carers in foster care, kinship care or residential care – up to the age of 21, if it’s right for you. If you are a ‘looked after’ young person living with foster carers, kinship carers or you live in residential care this is important information for you.
This information helps explain your rights and what you are entitled to so that you know what the local authority who shares responsibility for looking after you needs to provide and consider for your care until you are 21.
