Contact us to discuss community housing placements.

Community Housing provides accommodation for young people ready to take the first step towards independent living. Young people have the opportunity to develop the skills they will need to live independently, for example support with employment, education, budgeting and cooking.

We give young people (aged 16-25) the opportunity to develop the skills and responsibilities they will need to live independently. This includes support with finding and sustaining employment, education, budgeting and cooking. Having a safe and secure place to live is something that most of us take for granted. We recognise this can be a daunting time for young people transitioning from residential care, and as such we put a number of supports in place to ease this transition.

An action plan is developed with the young person to help prepare them for the move. Prior to the young people moving into their new home, we arrange a number of visits and overnight stays to support them with the adjustment to living in the house full time.

What Do We Offer?

  • Supported Tenancies
    The young person will receive continuing support and supervision from care professionals. They will also have access to Kibble’s other services e.g. Specialist Intervention Services.
  • Bespoke Service
    Each young person’s needs are assessed on an ongoing basis enabling us to tailor services to meet their requirements, and respond quickly and effectively.
  • Round the clock support
    No matter the time of day, our Community Housing Services team are on-call to provide assistance when needed.
  • Supported Employment And Training
    Access to Kibble’s young workforce development programmes will be offered, or the young person will be supported with an external college/ work placement.
  • Flexible Support
    The support given is based on the needs of each individual young person. As they become more independent and transition into the world of employment this support will gradually decrease.
