Planning Your Future

Your leaving care (my future) plan, financial support, getting a job, housing information and family

Planning for your future

Leaving care is a technical term that is used in legislation, but all it means is that you are no longer formally in the care of the Minister. Instead of using the language of leaving care plan, My Future Plan is another way you can refer to your planning. Leaving care doesn’t mean you won’t get help to set yourself up, that will be included in your leaving care (my future) plan. It also doesn’t mean you have to leave where you are currently living, that is up to you and your carer. If you have to leave where you are living, your leaving care (my future) plan needs to outline where you will live.
