Throughcare provides support for young people (15-21 years of age) who are moving on from being looked after to live independently.

We offer practical and emotional support and we can help with:

  • Finding college courses, training placements or work opportunities
  • Getting benefits, care leaver payments, college bursaries or grants
  • Finding and keeping accommodation
  • Getting support from health services e.g. dentists and nurses
  • Your rights and legal issues
  • Staying in contact with family and friends
  • Hobbies and interests
  • Any worries or problems

The Pathways Plan identifies the support a young person needs to live independently. It includes things like where to live, education or training, health and lifestyle, family and friends, jobs and money.

Who Cares? Scotland is a national voluntary organisation, working with care experienced young people and care leavers across Scotland.
