Supporting People programme
Supported lodgings for care leavers
Most young people leaving foster care or residential homes at 16 just aren’t ready to live on their own.
They often need help with basic living skills, such as cooking and budgeting, and some may prefer to have an adults help when trying to become more independent.
The supported lodgings scheme brings care leavers together with hosts. A host is someone who has a room in their home to rent and can offer advice to help build a young person’s confidence.
