Role of the Personal Advisor


Following a change in the law, you will be able to ask for support from your Personal Adviser (PA) up to the age of 25. This is to make sure care leavers can receive continuing support to help them into independence.

Your Personal Adviser is there to help you to prepare to live independently and to offer advice and support after you leave care. Sometimes, the role of the PA is undertaken by a Social Worker. Personal Advisers get involved in discussions about your needs and your Pathway Plan.



Pathway Plan.

Your Pathway Plan is based on consultation with you and important people in your life. The aim is to set out your needs, views and future goals and what support you will receive from us. We will review your Pathway Plan with you regularly and agree any required changes.

We will try to ensure that the same Personal Adviser supports you, though this may not always be possible. The amount of support that you receive from your Personal Adviser will depend on what you want and your circumstances.
