There is a need across the UK for providers of supported lodging. This could be a room for a college or university student or somewhere to protect a vulnerable young person who is leaving care or at risk of homelessness.

By becoming a supported lodging host, you can support a young person, guiding them on their journey to self-reliance and building the foundations for a positive future.

If you have a spare room and can provide a safe and supportive environment, then becoming a supported lodging host could be for you.
