Care First Services provides high-quality placement and support services for young people leaving Care as an organisation we are dedicated to supporting young people in their transition into adulthood.

We work with young people aged 16-18 that are in the Care of Social Services and that other Services find difficult to engage - we work to give them the motivation, self-confidence and skills they need to change their lives.

We believe that inside every young person who is or has been in care, there is a confident, positive, individual trying to shine through. Most of these young people can be classed as having 'multiple needs', such as homelessness, previous and/or current substance misuse or a history of offending.

Yet many of these individuals have achieved something tangible whilst living independently and working with us. They have returned to the classroom, started a college course, gained a qualification or found employment. For many it has been their first step back into education, training or work.

The team at Care First work throughout the UK and every year a growing number of young people have stayed and engaged with us.
