Children in Care Services

Sometimes children and young people cannot stay with their own families. If they have no other relatives able and willing to care for them, we will look after them.

Our children in care service includes fostering and adoption, and the council's children's homes.

  • Leaving care
    If you have been in care for 13 weeks without a break and are in care on or after your 16th birthday, you have the right to have access to the leaving care services
  • Virtual School of Children in Care
    The Virtual School works to raise the educational attainment and attendance of children and young people in the care of Haringey Council
  • Thresholds of Need (PDF, 127KB)
    Thresholds of Need is a document which aims to assist practitioners and managers in assessing and identifying a child’s level of needs and types of services/resources required to help them in moving from an assessment to a provision of services.
