Everyone needs a Leaving Care Plan – no matter how much you think you have the independence thing covered. But you know what? So many young people don’t have one which isn’t great.Having a Leaving Care Plan is the law. In the perfect world, having a plan should help you to be 100% prepared when you move out of care and into independence, but moving out can also happen really quickly – sometimes overnight.If you have a plan then you can be confident that you know how to go about finding somewhere to live so you won’t have to couch surf with friends, you might have some basic cooking and budgeting skills or you might find out how to get into TAFE or uni. Basically you’ll have some general tools for success so you don’t freak out!
