The Supported Lodgings Scheme is for 16-24 year olds who are homeless or leaving care. It works best for young people who want to develop their independence, while benefiting from a stable family home.
How does it work?
You rent a room for up to three years in the home of a Supported Lodging Provider, who will help you to learn the skills needed to live independently, from cooking and washing to managing money. You are part of the family and share the home.
To be considred for Supported Lodgings a young person will normally need to be in education, employment or training.
If you are interested in being a Supported Lodgings Provider please contact Mike Chedzoy in Housing Services on 01225 477940 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
