Accommodation

We believe the first step in supporting young people
is making sure they are living somewhere safe.

If you are a young person, your support worker will work with you to explore your future housing needs. We consider your individual situation and ensure we offer you accommodation which will best meet your needs. Alongside the accommodation, we offer a range of opportunities for confidence and skills development, such as our tenancy training and support to access education, employment and training.

If you’re a young person here’s how we can help you

If you need help, get in touch through our Contact Us, and we will advise what is possible

  • We may be able to support you with an interest-free loan, for either a deposit, or rent-in-advance, for a property you are moving into
  • We offer Bristol Youth MAPS, a homelessness prevention service, who will work with you and your network to help you remain at home, if it is safe to do so
  • Bristol Youth MAPS can support you to access assessments for temporary accommodation if you are eligible, through Bristol City Council, and we work with Bristol Nightstop, if you are suitable to be hosted to find short-term solutions if you are at risk of rough sleeping
  • We manage accommodation that offers 24-hour staffing support, such as St Georges House in Bristol, or Woodleaze in South Gloucestershire
  • We have a range of supported accommodation across the area including shared housing, where you would live with between 2 and 5 other people, and some self-contained flats.
  • We provide affordable, community-led housing schemes, such as LaunchPad
  • We offer affordable housing at our Establish and Future Builders properties if you’re in work or studying
  • We can match you with a host family in South Gloucestershire through our Supported Lodgings scheme
  • If you are ready to live independently, we can offer you affordable housing through our ‘move on’ housing project

WHAT YOUNG PEOPLE SAID

At St George’s House the best thing is being accepted - staff are understanding and don't judge. My confidence has shot up whilst being here
Whole house is quite good, nice space, ok area. Living room, spacious, big sofa. Alice designed it interesting and funky
St George’s House feels like a community. Tuesday music sessions are great. My support worker is really helpful as my goal is to live independently with my son.
I am more independent now, and getting help to understand how to be a single adult
The best thing about the house is having support and people around, not being on my own
