When you transfer across to the Pathway Team on or around your sixteenth birthday you will have a named social worker from the team up to the age of 18.
On or before your 18th birthday you will be allocated a personal advisor who will be your named worker. Sometimes the social worker will continue in this role - it will depend on what best suits you – but either way you will always have at least one named worker in the team undertaking the personal advisor role.
Your worker will be there to help you prepare for living independently - managing money - finding the right education, training or job - all the things you are going to need help with. The way in which we are going to help will be detailed in your Pathway Plan.
