Dorset Council Wants To Source Support For Young Adults Leaving Care

Dorset Council wants to hear from businesses and organisations that can support young people who are leaving council care and who want to develop their independence.

The council supports around 260 people aged between 18 and 25. Some of these care leavers face challenges in pursuing studies and finding employment because they may not have the usual support of friends and family.

Cllr Andrew Parry

Cllr Andrew Parry wants to hear from organisations that offer training opportunities, financial guidance, or life skills support. They’re hosting an online seminar on the Dorset Council website on 25th of October at 4 pm.
