PHASE 2

Our bespoke ‘Tenancy & Life-Skills’ programme is designed to teach and develop its participant to learn and develop key life skills, resilience and practical abilities which will assist them throughout their lifetime, particularly concerning independent living/ sustaining their own tenancies and well-being. Being responsible for your first home is a big responsibility that has many challenges, you can expect help with:

    • Sourcing appropriate accommodation
    • Understanding how to manage a tenancy
    • Finding affordable furniture

Managing domestic bills and payments
We recognise that our service cannot be delivered in isolation and as such have to work in collaboration with as many agencies as possible to allow cross-functional support and draw on other expertise. This will be particulate important once the young person has taken over their own tenancy.
