Local Offer for Care Leavers
Draft Local Offer for Brighton and Hove care
The Children and Social Work Act 2017 ensures that all local authorities establish a Corporate Parenting Board, and publish a 'local offer for care leavers', setting out the services on offer from both the local authority and other agencies.
The local authority must publish information about:
services which the local authority offers for care leavers as a result of its functions under the Children Act 1989
other services which the local authority offers that may assist care leavers in, or in preparing for, adulthood and independent living
information about services offered by others which the local authority has power to offer as a result of its functions under the Children Act 1989 / 2004
As corporate parent, it is our responsibility to make sure you know what services are available to our care leavers and what they can expect to receive.
The local offer must be updated from time to time, as appropriate but only after consultation with relevant persons, including care leavers. It must reflect what care leavers tell us they need, and not what we think they need.
