Support for Young People

We all need support sometimes and as well as people in your life, there are lots of other sources of support.

Teenagers

Find the support you need

We all need different support at different times. 

When you come into care, it can feel as if lots of people who hardly know you are choosing where you live, who you see, what you do at school and lots of other things.

But remember:

  • they must make sure that they find out what you think and feel about the choices they make

  • they must make those choices in your best interest

  • they must really believe they're doing what's best for you

 

Have a look at some of the links below if you need more support.​ Remember if it is career advice you want, look on our Careers page.
