Staying Put Offer

A Staying Put arrangement is an agreement between you, your foster carer and the Local Authority which enables you to stay with them when you stop being cared for at the age of 18.

It is the duty of the local authority:

  • To monitor the Staying Put arrangement
  • To provide advice, assistance and support to the Former Relevant child and the former foster parent with a view to maintaining the Staying Put arrangement (this must include financial support), until the child reaches the age of 21 (unless the local authority consider that the Staying Put arrangement is not consistent with the child’s welfare).
