Independent living/housing

  • If you are 16 or 17 we will provide you with a safe housing option that meets your needs and helps you to understand your rights if you decide to leave care.
  • We will give you the option to stay with your foster carer until you are 21 if you and your foster carer agree to this.
  • We will provide practical support for you to move to different accommodation if you need to.
  • We will support you when you reach 18 and above to find somewhere suitable to live, listening to your wishes and needs as outlined in the Homelessness Act 2017. You will have a priority with the housing department who we will work with on your behalf.
