Social services Benefits and support for care leavers

If you are in custody or on remand

Some care leavers who are in custody or on remand receive £5 per week.

You have to apply for this through your social worker or personal adviser.

You are entitled to this if you:

  • are 16 or 17; and
  • have spent at least 13 weeks in care - either all in one go, or in total - since you were 14; and
  • have spent at least one day in care after your 16th birthday.
