Lancashire House Project mentioned in Ofsted report

Posted 26th January 2023

The latest Ofsted Inspection report for Lancashire rated the experiences and progress of children in care and care leavers as "good" and praised the work of the House Project saying:

"Children in care who are moving towards adulthood are supported to prepare for greater independence. The local authority has invested in a bespoke housing project for children leaving care, to offer them extensive support in setting up home for the first time. A small number of children have started on this scheme, which offers a wraparound service, including therapeutic and peer support, so that they have the best opportunity to succeed in their new homes. While at an early stage of implementation, the project is showing positive signs of addressing care leavers’ needs in a holistic way.”
