Local Solutions has been offering support services in North Wales since 2007. We are working with local authorities and partner agencies to offer flexible services that meet the needs of the people of the community.
This service provides family style accommodation to homeless young people and operates in 7 boroughs across Merseyside and North Wales. Young people are accommodated with registered ‘Householders’ in their homes, they will have their own room and share the kitchen and bathroom facilities. This is an alternative to living in a hostel. Each young person will receive support from their Householder and a support worker.
Our Nightstop service provides emergency accommodation for 16-21 year olds who become homeless and need somewhere to stay immediately. Local Solutions’ Nightstop services are accredited with the National Nightstop organisation, DePaulUK. Young people can stay in a Nightstop placement for between 1 and 28 days, until stable accommodation can be identified.
