The 16+ Supported Lodgings Scheme provides young people with the help and guidance they need to make the transition from care to independence. 

As a supported lodgingsprovider you will offer suitable accommodationthis can be in your home, an annexe, or a separate building. You will also provide support, and access to facilities.

We will provide training, support from the team and a weekly payment for each young person with you. 

If you have accommodation and are interested in providing a care leaver with a home, the 16 + Team would really like to hear from you.
