Many care leavers have spent their formative years focusing on surviving their childhood rather than preparing for adulthood. With little opportunity to take decisions for themselves and without access to activities that build skills, knowledge and confidence they naturally struggle to live independently from as early as 16 years.

Through your donation young people are supported to develop knowledge, skills and confidence that better prepares them for independent living. They develop friendships and relationships that provide a sense of ‘family’ that they often don’t experience. By being fully involved in the project they experience decision making that develops ownership and responsibility combined with skills and knowledge about how to manage a home.

 

Young people tell us that:

‘’It is a starting point for a brilliant future… everyone is family and they support each other… they teach life skills to be able to be independent and move into your own place... there’s so many other things that come with having a tenancy, like being an adult and stuff like that… It has helped me so much, I can speak more, I’m not bottling it up… the best thing about this House Project was, we did the best activities… it’s putting warmth around the process of leaving care"
