Barnardo’s Supported Lodgings Service

Do you have a spare room? Could you relate to young people aged 16 – 25? Could you help them with budgeting, cooking and other independence skills? Could you encourage them in education, employment or training?
Why not make the most of your spare room and become a Supported Lodgings Provider for Coventry or Warwickshire young people? Supported Lodgings provide young people leaving care with safe supported places to live in the homes of local people.

Supported Lodgings Providers receive approximately £150 per week to support a young person on their journey to independence. Barnardo’s will offer you:

  • On-going support and supervision
  • Full training
  • Opportunities to develop your skills working with young people
