Children in care support

Support from YC Hertfordshire

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

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

Care Leaver Hubs

YC Hertfordshire has five Care Leaver Hubs at our Access Points across the county. Care leavers aged 16-21 can join a one-year project which supports them to become more independent in all areas of their lives. Find full details of the Care Leaver Hubs here.
