When a child reaches 18/19, we encourage them to become independant. During the year before they leave the CPS, they are mentored in budgeting, cooking & cleaning, using public transport, etc.
When they finally leave, we set them up with a bed & bedding, cooking equipment and a cooker, etc. and pay their first 3 months living expenses (The total cost for this is £681).
From then on, they are expected to secure a job to support themselves. The CPS is always there to offer support and guidance, and all graduates are always welcome to come home to visit their CPS family.
We are very proud of all of our CPS graduates!
