Benefits guide for care leavers

Post by David Roth » Mon May 12, 2014 12:18 pm

I know that most family and friends carers are bringing up children outside the care system, but I thought that those of you who are fostering the child/ren you are raising might be interested in this new benefits guide for care leavers.

The Catch22 NCAS guide for care leavers: Know Your Rights, Know Your Benefits, is now updated for 2014 and available online here:

It contains up-to-date information for care leavers on their entitlements.

Topics include:
• Types of benefit
• Looking for work
• How to make a claim
• Benefit sanctions
• Advice for parents
• Advice if you are ill or disabled

You can contact Catch22 NCAS directly if you’d like to purchase some hard copies, by emailing (priced at 1.50 per copy, minimum order 10 copies).
