Become a Supported Lodgings Carer.
Supported Lodgings is where a young person over 16 years is provided with safe accommodation, guidance and support to help prepare them for living independently.
The goal of a Supported Lodgings placement is that that young person will progress, developing new skills and confidence and the level of support offered by the carer/provider will reduce as the young person moves towards greater independence and the eventual move to independent living.
Supported Lodgings carer’s provide accommodation, support and a family setting to young people typically between the ages of 15-18. These placements are identified as the children for a varying amount of reasons cannot live at home, but are not ready to live independently.
As a Supported Lodgings carer, you will receive the following support:
- An Allocated Link Social Worker
- Access to Training and Carer Group
- Respite Nights
- Therapeutic Support
- Education Support
- Supported Lodgings Fostering Allowance
