FOI Request - Aftercare Services
Please provide information on:
1. The total number of requests made for Aftercare services by young people in your local authority since April 2015, under the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014.
2. How many of these requests were successful.
3. For what reasons any requests were rejected or turned down.
1. After care in Moray is an opt out rather than an opt in service. If young people have been in throughcare they automatically move into aftercare when they leave care - the criteria applied is that of being in care ( and away from home) on the 16th birthday. We can advise that 60 individuals were eligible for aftercare that year.
