Group Supported Living
The purpose of our group supported living service is to give service users the opportunities of acquiring the necessary skills to best prepare themselves for independent living.

Care Leavers Statistics
- 9,900 young people formally left the care of local authorities in England during 2013.
- 34% of care leavers are NEET (not in employment, education or training) at age 19, compared to 18.2% of the general youth population.
- In 2011 only 14.6% of children who had been looked after for at least a year achieved five good GCSEs including English and maths, compared to 58.1% for non-looked after children.
- 9% of boys (44% of girls) in Young Offender Institutions have previously been ‘looked after’ by a Local Authority.
Many care leavers experience homelessness and problems finding decent, affordable accommodation. The Children Leaving Care Act 2000 gives local authorities the duty to accommodate young people ‘in need’ and the Homelessness Act 2002 stipulates that local authorities must now deem 16 and 17 year olds and 18 to 21 year olds leaving care to be in priority need of housing.
