Independent Futures works with all young people who have been looked after by Islington (Islington care leavers) aged 16-21 who are in the process of making the transition from the care system to independent living. Independent Futures also continutes to work with Islington care leavers after the age of 21 if they are on a planned program of education or training. Islington care leavers who are aged over 21 and who are planning to resume their education can return to the service at any point up to the age of 25.
