Support for care leavers

We want to make more things possible for more people, that’s why we believe care leavers should have the same opportunities and support as any other young person.

Leaving the care system can be a really overwhelming experience, especially becoming independent and standing on your own two feet. Since 2017, we’ve been working with young people leaving care to help develop the skills that are needed to manage a tenancy and have a positive future.

How we work with our partners

In Greater Manchester, we are committed to supporting those leaving care through the Greater Manchester Housing Provider’s Care Leavers Pledge. We also offer support to care leavers in the Knowsley area.

Along with other local landlords we’ve pledged to offer a range of homes, life skills, mentoring and employment and skills to young people leaving care. This has built upon how we are already supporting young people, especially those soon to move on from living in care who benefit from additional guidance.
