Help with setting up a home

When you leave care you can get up to £2000 which you can use to buy important items you need. This is known as a leaving care grant. The amount you can get will be different depending on which type of accommodation you move into. You can talk about this with your personal advisor.


If you move into accommodation that doesn't provide extra support, then this is known as an independent tenancy. If you are moving into an independent tenancy, then you can get up to an extra £300 to help you pay for moving costs, internet access, flooring, and curtains or blinds.
