What financial help can I get when I turn 16?
This again will vary depending on your needs. The 16-19 bursary is certainly a good place to start. For those aged 19 and over and eligible, your education, health and care plan will outline the support you can receive. At 16, young people can claim benefits in their own right but It's important to get free independent advice around what benefits can be claimed and how they could affect the payments that you or your family might already receive. If you are eligible for a service from Adult Social Care, following an assessment you may be offered a personal budget.
