Accommodation and support for young people

The aim of an accommodation and support pathway is to provide a safe, supportive and practical route to independence for those young people who have been accommodated by the local authority.

The options discussed here will be suitable for young people from the age of 16.

Moving on to supported accommodation

Young people moving on from emergency accommodation may move to other short-term options, but some will be able to access ‘move-through’ or longer-term supported accommodation.

Moving on to longer-term accommodation

After two years in supported accommodation, a young person will hopefully have gained sufficient skills and knowledge to consider living independently, either in move-on accommodation or external supported or unsupported housing.
