Supported lodgings

The Community Supported Lodgings Scheme's purpose is to find accommodation for young homeless people, who come from a wide variety of backgrounds.

Community Supported Lodgings is a stepping stone to independence. Young people on the scheme are expected to learn skills we take for granted. Such as budgeting, cooking, cleaning, washing and generally staying safe and healthy. This will enable them to become independent and eventually cope in their own homes.

The scheme is looking for residents aged over 25, who can provide warm, secure and friendly accommodation for young people. Who are aged between 16 and 17 and are at risk, and care leavers aged between 18 and 21.

We will provide regular support to the carers. Each young person will receive support from a social worker or a support worker during their stay with you.

You are not expected to provide guardianship for a young person, just support and guidance in a safe environment.
