Care leavers | Pathway plan

When do you get your Pathway Plan?

From the age of 16 years and 3 months you will have an assessment about you and your future. The information from this will go in to your Pathway Plan.

About your plan

It is your plan and it is important that you take part to make sure it explains your needs and wishes.

Your plan will tell you what will happen, who will do it and when it will be done. These things will be for you, your personal advisor and maybe even your family or carers to do.

Your Pathway Plan is divided into sections looking at education, training, health, finances and where you will be living. It will be updated regularly as your needs change. It can be a large document but it needs to cover all the things you need.

Agreeing your plan

When your plan is ready you will receive a copy of it to check. The managers in the team will also read and agree the plan.

If you feel there are parts of the plan that are wrong or difficult for you to understand you can ask for them to be explained or sometimes even changed.

Pathway Plans are updated by the Personal Advisors and only as specific issues change.
