Supported Lodgings

Supported Lodgings

Our Supported Lodgings scheme provides good quality accommodation for young people aged 16 to 21 who 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're always looking for people who would like to offer accommodation and support to a young person who has been cared for. We're 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.

To find out more contact Laura Mills, Supported Lodgings Officer, on laura.mills@togetherforchildren.org.uk or 0191 561 7302/0750 082 6729.
