Are you a care leaver aged 16-25? 

On these web pages you will find information about the support that is available to young people who have been in the care of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames and the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and are now aged 16-25.  

Local authorities have a duty to young people leaving care to inform them of services available and provide support to successfully move onwards and upwards to independence. This Local Offer explains your entitlements as a care leaver and will also help you to get the best out of the support on offer.  It has been created with input from care leavers and a variety of professionals who support care leavers in Kingston and Richmond.


The offer includes information about: 

  • Entitlement Status Support 16+ 
  • Your money and documents 
  • Where you live and your safety 
  • Your education, employment and training
  • Your health
  • Getting your voice heard
