Support Lodgings

Do you have a spare room?

Would you like to make a positive difference to a young person's life?

We would like to hear from you.

Supported lodgings is an alternative to foster care and involves you being assessed as a host for a vulnerable young person. It offers young people from age 16-18 a stable environment to support their development of practical skills and emotional stability needed to make the transition to independent living.

Hosts are expected to take an interest in the young persons welfare and progress, reporting any concerns to the Project Coordinator and working closely with the young persons social worker and/or personal advisor.

As a host you will receive:

>Ongoing regular support from the Project Coordinator

>A placement allowance

>Training opportunities

Who are we looking for:

> People with a spare bedroom who live in Staffordshire

> Someone who has spare time to be able to support a young person

> People who want to make a positive difference to the life of teenagers

> Someone who has patience, energy and a sense of humour
