Sometimes young people who have left care, still need a little care.

With Next Step After Care you can get in touch with people who will try and help you sort out the things you’re having trouble with, no matter how big or small.

How involved we get is totally up to you. So, if you’ve left care and you’re under 21 don’t be shy, give us a call or text 24/7, and we’ll see what we can work out together.

And if you know someone who you think could do with some extra support you can call us to talk about how to help them too.

Want some more information about what we can offer or how to get in contact with us? Check out some printable information in our brochure here.

Your next step might be an email

Don’t want to call or text? Why not put your thoughts in an email. Sometimes writing things down really helps. And just like phoning or texting, you can email anytime, about anything. We’re here 24/7 and we’ll respond within a day.

What happens when you make contact?

In some cases, we will be able to help straight up with advice or information over the phone or by text or email. If the problem’s a bit trickier we can work with you to arrange the right individual local support. We might even be able to provide funds to purchase essential goods and services that can make a difference. If you agree, we can also arrange to check in with you every now and then by phone, just to see how things are going.

Next Step After Care services are voluntary and hassle-free. How involved we get is always up to you. The next step is your step.
