Supported lodgings

Trafford supported lodgings scheme is part of Trafford's children, families and wellbeing service.

The scheme recruits 'Supported Lodgings Providers' who can provide safe, secure and supportive accommodation in their home to young people aged 16 - 21. The young people may be in supported lodgings for various reasons, for example: leaving care, family breakdown, bereavement or risk or harm - but all require emotional and practical guidance in order to develop the skills and confidence to live independently.

What you will receive as a supported lodgings provider:

  • Ongoing support and supervision from the supported lodgings coordinators
  • Comprehensive ongoing training
  • Financial assistance in the form of regular payments
