Care Leavers' Joint Housing Protocol

This chapter was added in April 2022.

The Joint Care Leavers' Housing Protocol sets out the commitment by Children's Services, Local District Councils' Housing Authorities, Accommodation Providers and Support Services to meeting the accommodation and support needs of Children in our Care and Care Leavers who are the responsibility of Lancashire County Council and the 12 District Councils within Lancashire. This joint working approach is a commitment to Corporate Parenting across the range of agencies that support accommodation and contribute to the 'Local Offer'. The protocol has sought to adopt a consistent process and approach across all 12 districts, however there is some variation.
