By working with other young people leaving care, you make friends, get a house to call your home, and take ownership and control over your life. You have joint ownership of your Local House Project (LHP) with staff.
What will I do?
You will meet as a group every week and work out between you how you want your project to run. You will do new things, learn how to look after a home get ready for moving in. You will be involved in making decisions about leaving care, where you will and what you want your home to be like.
Who will I be with?
You will be with other young people who are getting ready to leave care. There will be about 10 of you and you will become a team. You will be supported by three members of staff and young people who are already part of your LHP.
The House Project is an opportunity that hasn’t been done before. It is the best scheme for moving and being independent

Young People's Views
Young People are at the heart of House Projects across both England and Scotland.
There are lots of ways that we measure how LHPs improve outcomes and make a difference for young people leaving care, but there is nothing more powerful than hearing it directly from young people themselves.
