day centres and hostels
If you are a young person leaving care you should make sure you are as prepared as possible for living independently. Your personal advisor or social worker should be able to give a lot of advice and help around finding accommodation and planning for the future.
If you do find yourself homeless you should contact Walsall Council's Homeless and Housing Advice Service. Care leavers are classed as in priority need under homelessness legislation and this means that councils have a duty to provide housing or support to care leavers.
- Walsall Council's Transition and Leaving Care Team provides advice and support to young people leaving the care of Walsall Council.
- Voice provides advice, support and advocacy for young people in care and leaving care.
