Barnardo’s seeking hosts/mentors for 16 – 21 year olds

Barnardo's Supported Lodgings Flyer (1)Hosts in the area who are willing to become trained mentors for young people aged 16-21 are being sought by Barnardo’s South Coast Lodgings.

Supported Lodgings placements are a stepping stone to independence for young people at risk of homelessness, leaving the care system, asylum seekers and refugees. Supported Lodgings Hosts provide practical support – for example helping young people how to cook, budget and apply for jobs/training. They alos provide emotional support with a view to increasing their confidence, resilience and readiness to move on to other accommodation and towards independence. Supported lodgings creates a safe family environment to support young people through crucial transition period into adulthood.

So far the project has supported over 20 young people to find a stable home to practice life skills that will prevent homelessness in the future.

To find out more about Supported Lodgings, or if you would like the team to come and speak about the project and the work they do in person, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. More information and contacts here:
