Your plan, your goals


Pathway planning For 18 to 25 year olds

If you're former relevant care leaver, your personal adviser will talk to you about what support you need and record this information in your Pathway Plan.

Your Pathway Plan is all about the steps you need to take to help you confidently move into your adult life. Your initial plan will be written before you're 16 years and 3 months old by your social worker.

If you're over 16 when you first come into care, it will be written within 3 months of this happening by your social worker.

From the ages of 18 to 25, your personal adviser will review and write your pathway plan.

It sets out your needs, views, future goals and ambitions. It will help you to think about the support you need from us and other services we may work with.

The Pathway Plan covers many different areas, including:

  • accommodation 
  • education, training and employment
  • health and development 
  • independent living skills 
  • family and social networks
  • hobbies/social/leisure 
  • financial support 
  • further support 
  • ethnicity, culture and identity
  • a contingency plan

We'll make sure we write your Pathway Plan with you and review it every six months to keep it up to date.

With your agreement, we may ask some of our partners to help us. This may include:

  • housing
  • education
  • health
  • any other service you may have worked with

This is to make sure your plan is the best it can be for you.
