IMPAKT Housing & Support
Supported Lodgings is a bit like fostering but less involved. It provides accommodation with host families in the community for young people aged 16-25, who may be leaving care, or find themselves homeless and who would feel happier in a community setting
Becoming a Host
Young people are paired with compatible hosts to ensure that they will get along, and both receive support to help make the placement successful. Hosts can be individuals, couples, or families and receive full training to prepare them for the role as well as £132/week when housing a young person. If you are over 21 and would like to make a positive difference to young people and are interested in finding out more, we would love to hear from you.
