Supported Lodgings Scheme - Can you help?
A new initiative seeks families, couples or single people ‘Hosts’ (in Haringey and surrounding boroughs) with a spare room who could provide accommodation and support to a young person for approximately 3 months. Hosts will receive training, on-going support and payment. Click on the youtube link to hear Stephen (18) and Tom (16) tell their stories of moving from homelessness to joining Hosts, Gary and Pat, as part of the Black Country YMCA Supported Lodgings scheme.
There are approximately 113 known Supported Lodgings Schemes across England achieving numerous successes for those young people involved such as supporting them to: stay on in education, employment and training, and gain important life-skills. To find out more about how you can help, click on:
