Where to get support
One of the best ways to find out what the Leaving Care Service is doing in your local area and how they could help you, is to follow the Leaving Care Service on Facebook.
16UP is the newsletter from the service that shows what young people have been doing, and publicises activities and events that you can get involved with. You can send in your own article if there's something that you want to share.
