Supported Lodgings Householder



Our Supported Lodgings services rely on ‘Householders’ who are families, couples or individuals, who rent a bedroom within their home to a young homeless person, and provide both practical and emotional support.

Young people are ‘matched’ to Householders, taking into account factors including geographical location of the home, personality types, family composition, gender etc. We are always looking for new Householders across the Supported Lodgings Services.


Type of support Householders offer:

Practical support to develop skills like budgeting, cooking, cleaning
Emotional support and make efforts to help a young person to feel safe and secure
Provision of a furnished room and 2 meals a day
Regular communication and meetings with the young person’s keyworker
Householders receive regular support and training and a weekly payment towards to the costs of accommodating the young person.


What is the relationship like between the Householder and the Young Person?  

To answer that question is Nurjana and her Householder Mandy in the video below



The assessment process of becoming a Householder includes DBS checks, references and an assessment with one of the Supported Lodgings’ managers.
