Young adults in supported living accommodation
We are dedicated to helping young people identify and realise their full potential and plan for a successful future. We have a variety of accommodation based schemes, including accommodation for 16-25 years old, as well as floating support services which provide young people the secure foundation and support they need to make the successful move to adulthood.
Our teams help young people to identify their goals – such as going to college, getting a job, or living in their home and draw up a support plan with them that breaks these goals into steps that are easier to achieve.
This builds on strengths and addresses challenges such as:
