Support from YC Hertfordshire

YC Hertfordshire provides youth projects and programmes, information, advice, guidance and support for young people leaving care up to the age of 21 through the YC Hertfordshire Access Points.

If you are a care leaver or preparing to leave care, you can also get support to help you become more independent and confident in all areas of your life. We will help you identify you goals in life and focus on how you can achieve them.

We offer a range of programmes to specifically support young people in care and care leavers. They run in each district and include:

  • Independent Living Skills programme
  • Come dine with me - cooking skills programme for young people
  • Chair your own review - supporting young people to direct and drive their reviews
