Leaving care support

The leaving care service works with care experienced young people leaving care aged 16 – 25.

Just because you are leaving care, or have already left care, we haven’t stopped caring about you. We want to make sure that you feel safe and supported and know where and who to go to for advice and help. Our care leaver offer describes all the support available to young people who have left care.

How to get in touch

You are expected to contact your own leaving care advisor in the first instance.

When your own leaving care advisor is not available, a duty worker can be contacted on 0116 454 2811. Our phoneline is open Monday to Friday 8.30am to 12noon and 1 to 5pm (4.30pm on Friday).

You can see the duty worker Monday to Thursday: 9am - 4.30pm and Friday: 9am - 4pm at Connexions Service, 2 Wellington Street, Leicester, LE1 6HL. (Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions the office is currently closed to visitors).

If you do not have a leaving care advisor, or you are calling out of hours, you can contact the Leicester City Duty and Advice Service on 0116 454 1004 or by e-mailing
