Supported Lodgings Scheme

Many young people who are leaving care and / or who are homeless aren’t quite ready to live independently.

Supported Lodgings providers help to bridge the gap by offering a room in their home to young people and by supporting them to develop the skills to live independently – for instance:

  • Budgeting
  • Managing Laundry
  • Cooking Skills
  • Applying for jobs and completing forms
  • Developing positive routines

Could you provide Supported Lodgings?

Anyone over 21 with a spare room can apply to become a supported lodgings provider.

Being in full time work is not a barrier to taking part in the scheme.

Your marital status, sexuality and cultural background will not affect your application.

What support will I receive?

  • As a Supported Lodgings Provider you will receive the full support of the Supported Lodgings Team.
  • You will receive training to ensure that you are fully prepared to deal with providing support to a young person.
  • You will receive assistance and guidance from the team throughout the duration of the young person’s stay with you.
  • You will receive payment of £189 in recognition of the support and care you provide to the young people you accommodate.
