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 House Project with staff.

What will I do?

You make decisions about how the House Project will run, have a say in how some of the budget is spent for the benefit of the project, put forward ideas for how extra funding could be used, and can get involved in fundraising activities so that you can put good ideas into practice.

Who will I be with?

When you join a House Project, you will join with other young people (around 10) and become a team; you support each other, learn the skills you need to be interdependent, and fix up and look after a property that will become your home, for as long as you want to live there.



The House Project is an opportunity that hasn’t been done before. It is the best scheme for moving and being independent
