Charity Depaul, working with Cheshire West and Chester, are looking for hosts who could offer 'supported lodgings' for young people leaving care.
The National youth charity Depaul UK are working with Cheshire West and Chester Council to find Supported Lodgings hosts. Our aim is to find local heroes, just like you, who are willing to offer up a spare room, cooked meal and a listening ear. If you have a spare room and the willingness to open your home, you could support this initiative and provide a safe space for a care-experienced young person.
Cheshire West and Chester Council want to create brighter futures for care-experienced young people, aged 16-17, through a supported lodgings scheme with Depaul UK. This heart-warming initiative places young individuals with volunteer host families, offering a safe environment to pursue their studies and achieve success.
Depaul UK supported 2668 people last year with services across the UK preventing 621 young people from spending a night on the streets. These impactful stories deserve to be recognised and shared across our communities in Cheshire West and Chester.
