If you're not sure if your care experience or the placement type is eligible for support, contact us for further advice. Care could have been provided by a Local Authority (Council), a religious organisation or charity. Depending on when you were in care and the circumstances, the setting could have been called specific names such as a List D school, a Borstal, a close support.
