Talk on support scheme
A 12-WEEK consultation has been launched seeking views into a new scheme which aims to support looked-after children as they move into adulthood and independent living.
The proposed scheme "When I Am Ready" will offer eligible children the opportunity to stay with their foster carers beyond the age of 18. This recognises that not all young adults are ready to move to living on their own, especially if they are vulnerable or have complex health, learning or other needs.
Gwenda Thomas, deputy minister for children and social services, said: "This scheme is about offering young people choice and control over their placement and giving them support".
