We know that it's a big step when you move out of care and start living on your own or with friends. But that doesn't mean we stop supporting you.

We want to make sure that you feel safe and supported and know where to go for help and advice. Our Local Offer gives you information about the support and services available to young people aged 16 to 25 who have been in the care of Dorset Council.

Find out more about your rights when you leave care from Coram.

Contact us if you're aged between 21 and 25 but you don't have a Personal Adviser supporting you. But contact us before you reach the age of 25 if you need support. We'll use a pathway plan to work out how we can help you.
