Providers of Supported Living Accommodation for Care Leavers:
Supported living is an alternative to residential care and gives you the opportunity to receive care and support in your own home or adapted accommodation. You can choose the level of care and amount of support you need.
Independent living – Your choice may be to live on your own. We can offer support where you already live and can also help you find a flat/apartment or house.
Shared living – We can help connect you to other people who might want to share their home. You will have your own space but benefit from sharing the communal spaces and sharing household bills.
Apartment living – You may be looking for the best of both worlds. Your own modern apartment with some shared communal space so you can choose when and if you want to socialise. We have worked with our housing partners to develop this popular type of accommodation.
Stepping stone accommodation – Providing stability whilst you are between long-term support solutions. This type of support will help you plan for your future in a structured way. We will support you with the skills you may need to help you live more independently and, when you are ready, support you to move on.
