SEN care for under 18's

Hi everyone

seeking help , ny situation im a single parent caring for 17 year old daughter who has autism, learning difficulties and other medical conditions. My daughter is due to finish school and starts attending college in September , as she is classed as a leaver she finishes early this year June 24th, this is a problem as i work in Education and dont finish work until july. My daughter needs 24 hr support , however i am struggling to find a care agency that cares for anyone under the age of 18 . I cant stop work for a month and yet the system states that she should finish school in June. I have on family members that can help as she needs help with personal care.

Please please please if anyone out there knows of any care agencies that work with under 18's please can you reply thankyou so much.
