Camden's new app for care leavers

Camden's new app for care leavers

Pocket PA is the new app created by, and for, care leavers in the London Borough of Camden.

Co-produced with care leavers and the Children Safeguarding and Social Work team at Camden Council, Pocket PA provides advice and guidance around subjects that young people told us were important to them: such as Housing, Financial Support, Benefits, Leaving Care at 18 and Education, Employment and Training.

There is a live feed of regional apprenticeship vacancies throughout London and the South East, listing hundreds of opportunities across many different industries and sectors.

Pocket PA also includes a directory of local organisations and groups that offer care leavers further help and support, and all the content within the app is available in multiple languages including Somali, Vietnamese, Arabic and Albanian.

Pocket PA is available on the App Store and Google Play, for iOS and Android.
