Practical support is available for young people leaving care in Northumberland. This can help you build life skills, including self-care, cooking, shopping, laundry, and budgeting.
We have a 'setting up for home' allowance. This provides you with essential items for your home. For example, a washing machine, fridge, tv, tv license, a bed, carpets, blinds, cutlery, and more.
We also consider things such as soft pictures and furnishings to make your new accommodation feel more like home. Money will be provided for this, as long as you don't need this money for other things.
