The House Project supports young people in and leaving care to manage their own homes and achieve successful independence.
The House Project is a collaborative business, in which adults and young people work co-operatively for the benefit of all the members. Our core aims and beliefs are that young people should:
- Have their own home and the support of a community for as long as they need it
- Take ownership of decisions affecting their own lives, their property and the development of the business;
- Gain independence and the skills to support themselves emotionally and financially through the support they need when they need it
- Take responsibility for keeping themselves safe, looking after others and the project.
In order to achieve these aims the House Project Board ensures that safe decisions are made and the reputation, fidelity and financial stability of the project is protected.
