Support for children aged 0-25 with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Your rights and the law - care leavers and young carers

Young carers and young people who are leaving care may need to seek support, advice and guidance on their rights and the law at specific times in their lives, such as a particular issue arising that they need to understand. There may be professionals that can provide this advice, such as health professional, teacher or social worker but there are also very helpful and easy to access websites.

For young carers they will find useful links on the NHS website.

For young people who are preparing to leave care the Rights4Children website can be very useful.
