If you want to go into care
Moving a young person into care is a last resort. Social services will only move you if it’s necessary to keep you safe.
You might feel that you want to move into care. If you do, share your concerns with social services and Childline. Social services will investigate your situation. It’s really important to share as much information as you can so social services can help you as best as they can. They’ll look at what different options there are to support you and your family and take action to keep you safe.
You can also talk through how you’re feeling with a trusted adult or with Childline. It may feel difficult to talk about it but you deserve to have the support that you need.
Our conversation starter can make it a bit easier to tell someone what's going on for you. You can take your time to write down what’s been happening, how it’s making you feel and how you'd like to be supported. You can then give that to a trusted adult.
