If you're in foster care, you may be able to remain there under a 'Staying Put' arrangement until you're 21. We advise planning for this when you reach your 16th birthday. You will need to discuss the possibility of this arrangement with your social worker.
As a Hertfordshire Care Leaver, you have the option to access social housing (sometimes known as Council housing or Housing Association accommodation). Unsure how it works for you? Check out the short video above explaining how the County Council ensures the process is as smooth as possible for you.
Your social worker will help you apply to the relevant District Council to join their housing register when you are 16. Suppose you came into care in one area but lived in a different location; well in that case you could register with both local authorities.
Click on the map below to find contact details for each District Council. Before applying on to a housing register, you should talk to you social worker, as they will assist you with the application and make sure that your application progressed appropriately.
Click or search for the location to find out where to apply and contact details for who looks after housing in that area.
