Funding for personal adviser support for care leavers to age 25

A section 31 grant determination letter showing the amount of personal adviser support for care leavers funding allocated to each local authority.



Section 31 grant determination letters from the Department for Education to all local authorities in England. The letters notify councils of their funding allocations to provide personal adviser support to all care leavers up to age 25, if they request it.

The Children and Social Work Act 2017 introduced a duty on local authorities to extend personal adviser support.

The ‘Extending personal adviser support to age 25: new burdens assessment’ contains further information for local authorities about the total amount of funding for the new duty.

Guidance for local authorities is available at Extending Personal Adviser support to age 25.
