Section 1 outlines 7 Corporate Parenting Principles local authorities must have regard to in their work with these children and young people.
Before publishing its local offer for care leavers (or any updated version) a local authority must consult relevant persons about which of the services offered by the local authority may assist care leavers in, or in preparing for, adulthood and independent living.
