Are you a local authority who wants to improve outcomes for young people leaving care?
By developing your own Local House Project you will enable young people to leave care feeling prepared, excited and confident about their future.
What happens next
Interested local authorities have an initial discussion with the National House Project and both parties agree that establishing a House Project is right for them.
We have a self-assessment tool that assists local authorities to think about what needs to be in place to establish and support a successful House Project. Integral to this is a strong corporate parenting approach and a relationship with a Housing Provider who will work with the local authority to secure properties on an annual basis for young people leaving care.
The decision to proceed must be informed by the views of young people and they, with support from senior officers, ‘pitch’ to the National House Project as to why a House Project is right for them and other young people in care and how it would work.
