Health and well-being

Our leaving care team and your personal adviser can support you to stay healthy and look after your physical and mental health. We can:

  • give you a health passport when you reach 18 which includes details of your health history from your childhood, for example, when and if you had immunisations and your current health needs
  • give you information about healthy living
  • give you information about getting help to pay for prescriptions
  • support you to register with a GP and dentist if you're not already registered
  • support you to move from CAMHS to adult services
  • give you information about counselling services that are available locally
  • support you to attend or access health appointments
  • give you information about health drop-in centres
  • give you help with transport costs to attend health appointments
  • offer you the support of a specialist nurse who works with looked after children and care leavers to give support and advice on a range of health issues including diet, contraception, mental health and wellbeing and how to keep yourself fit and well
  • if you are a parent, take an interest in your child/ren and support you to do the best for them

If you need help accessing childcare, we can tell you about the services that can help you do this.
