Pathways Plans for Care Leavers

What is a Pathway Plan?

Every Care Leaver has a Pathway Plan that is special and individual to them. Your Pathway Plan will replace your care plan from the age of 16 but it is very similar to your care plan. Your Pathway Plan is about your needs. It shared what you, professionals and the people in your support system all need to do to make sure your move into adult life is successful.

How will I be involved in making my Pathway Plan?

For your Pathway Plan to be effective it will be based on an up-to-date needs assessment. This sets out what you need to achieve your goals. Your Pathway Plan will tell you the support that can be offered to help you reach your goals. We will fully involve you in the development of your Pathway Plan. Your views must be recorded, and you must get a copy of your Plan.

Will anyone else be involved in making my Pathway Plan?

With your agreement, we might ask for advice from our partner agencies when completing your Pathway Plan. This may include:

  • Housing
  • Education
  • Training and Employment providers
  • Benefits Services
  • Health Services
  • Youth Justice Service

We do this to make sure we all work together to provide you with clear and consistent advice and support.
