If you're a young person who's been 'looked after' we can help if you have left, or are about leave care - your social worker can put you in touch with our Pathway Team (see contact details below).

Needs assessment

We'll make an assessment of your need from meeting with you, the people who care for you and any other people who know you well.

We look at your:

  • practical skills and what you might need help with 
  • health
  • leisure interests
  • finances
  • accommodation
  • education, training and/or employment
  • need for support

Pathway plan

During your needs assessment we write your Pathway plan, which says what you might need help with and who will provide the help.

From then on we look at your Pathway plan together every six months to see what has changed and agree any updates that may be needed.

Continued support

Your personal advisor will tell you about the groups we run, our newsletters and the wide range of social activities that you can take part in after you have left care.

If you're new to the area

If you've been looked after in a different area you can contact our Pathway Duty Worker on tel: 01904 555389, Monday to Friday, between 1.00pm and 4.30pm, an answer machine is available at all other times, or you can  email: pathwayteam@york.gov.uk
