About Leaving Care Solutions
Leaving Care Solutions are a leading provider of semi-independent accommodation and support for young people leaving care.
Our vision is to make a positive and lasting difference to young people who have been in care and are moving towards independence. We provide young people with accommodation/housing, as well as support them to move towards independent living and educational achievements.
Why work with us?
Staff recruited at Leaving Care Solutions can expect the company’s full commitment to their training and development. Training will take the form of internal and external courses and staff will be encouraged to gain relevant qualifications. Their development will be monitored through staff appraisals and continual professional development is promoted.
To achieve the ambitions we have for our young people, we know it takes a passionate team who share our vision – to see children follow their dreams and reach their full potential.
With over 20 years’ experience in providing services for care leavers and other disadvantaged teenagers, we have a demonstrable track record of providing high quality and flexible services for both care leavers and their commissioning local authority.Read More
LCS knows that every young person is different. We don’t believe in ‘one size fits all’. We understand that we need to earn trust and respect by being reliable, safe and having caring staff who you can get to young people gradually. We won’t assume how they feel – it’s up to them to tell us when the time is right.Read More
Our placements include 24/7 staffed shared houses for multiple placements, including a female only unit, as well as a variety of standalone flats with floating support and bespoke placements. Our bespoke placements accommodate high risk, vulnerable young people with one to one support around the clock.Read More
