Information of how we support young people leaving care.

Leaving care

Young people leaving care can be at risk of not making a successful transition from school to the next stage of their learning or work journey.

Education after school

Educational Services work in partnership with Skills Development Scotland (SDS) to support our young people leaving care. We support them so after school they get and keep a place in work, learning or training.

To find more information on SDS services and resources contact their local careers centre in Dumbarton 01389 761421 or Clydebank 0141 952 1454 or using the World of Work website.

Support after care

West Dunbartonshire Council has a duty to prepare young people for leaving care and to support them once they leave. This support is provided by the Throughcare Team within HSCP.
