These Regulations amend the Children (Leaving Care) Regulations 2001 ("the 2001 Regulations"). The 2001 Regulations make provision about support for children and young people aged 16 and over, who are, or have been, looked after by a local authority.

Regulation 3 of the 2001 Regulations is amended so that children placed with a parent, a person with parental responsibility or someone with a residence order in their favour under section 23(4) of the Children Act 1989 and who are subject to a care order, are eligible for local authority assistance.

Regulation 4 of the 2001 Regulations is amended so that children who have spent 6 months or more living with a parent, a person with parental responsibility or someone with a residence order in their favour, will still be eligible for local authority assistance if the placement subsequently breaks down.
