Supported lodgings services provide a young person with a room of their own in a private home where they are a member of the household, but are not expected to become a member of the family. The householder, or host, provides a safe and supportive environment, working alongside professional services to help and support the young person in gaining skills for independent adult life.
This guide is based on a review of supported lodgings services in 17 local authority areas in England, and of data collected through the Supporting People programme.
