    I was wondering if someone, lets call them peson A, is aged 17-19 is living in a household where the little siblings are moved into care and the people who are the bread winners are no longer able to support the people in the house (i.e. the parents), if person A was financially and otherwise reliant on the breadwinnersm what would happen to them? would they be able to go into care?

    Hey, sorry I know this is a late reply

    I think you have to be under 16 years old to be put into care. However in this situation the person would be eligible to receive other support from the council. For example they could be classed as legally homeless in which case the council have to provide them with somewhere to stay eg homeless accommodation or supported accommodation and support from a social worker if they don't already have one. I would suggest they contact their local council and ask about housing options. Another good place to contact is the charity shelter, they have a phone number and should be able to give specific advice. I hope this helps

    Ps I live in Scotland so rules might be slightly different if you live in another country.

    Hope everything works out xxx
