Passport to Independence tool

Passport to Independence tool (pdf)From the age of 12, foster carers, residential staff and social workers will help young people in care develop the skills needed to live independently. These skills cannot be learnt over night, so we have developed the Passport to Independence tool to make sure we cover as many skills as possible.

It is the responsibility of the foster carer or residential worker to make sure the Passport to Independence is completed. However it is a great way for young people to also keeping track of where they are, and what they may need additional help with. Relevant topics can then go into the Pathway Plan.
