Supported Lodgings


What is Supported Lodgings? 

Supported Lodgings is a fantastic next step for young people who are nearly ready to live fully independently but need a helping hand first.  When someone offers a young person a room, it provides a supportive home environment in which they can learn and grow.  

Leaving care or a service can be difficult and disorientating – we believe when our young people know what it feels like to belong and be valued, they have the stability to thrive. 


The Young Person: 

  • Aged 16-25 years old 
  • They are in education, employment or training 
  • Low support needs but may need help learning soft skills like cooking, budgeting, cleaning and shopping 
  • Need compassion and understanding – they have been on a long journey! 


The Host: 

  • We encourage a variety of people to apply 
  • We love hosts who are kind and have a passion for young people 
  • Can provide a room in a private house 
  • You are not the young person’s only support, we will continue to provide support and social workers or personal advisors remain involved 
  • Costs are covered with £175 per week 


Who we are 

Supported Lodgings is a 1625ip project run from our South Gloucestershire office by Duncan Stokes. He is very friendly, easy to chat to and we recommend giving him a call!
