Further information

The Together for Children Supported Lodgings Scheme provides good quality accommodation for young people, aged 16 to 21, looking for a place to live.

Many young people find it difficult to move on to full independence straight away and supported lodging provides a stepping-stone, giving young people the chance to learn how to live independently in the supportive environment of a family home.

The service aims to help young people:

• Feel safe & secure
• Develop the skills necessary for independent living
• Feel they can talk openly and in confidence
• Access support to achieve personal goals

Could you provide a home?

We are looking for people who would like to offer accommodation and support to a young person who has been cared for. We are open to applications from all walks of life, but to be eligible you’ll need to have a spare room available.

The time a young person stays within supported lodgings can vary from a few months to several years. Some young people become part of the family, others prefer a bit more independence.

You’ll be supported throughout the process by our team and will receive financial compensation for the extra expense of having a young person in your home.
