The Stoke-on-Trent House project was established in 2015 through consultation with care leavers. in its initial phases a group of care leavers aged 16+ were supported to manage the refurbishment of void properties and make them their home for life.
Five years later we have a community of young people that have been supported through their transition into independent living and who are all living in properties that they have decorated and put “their stamp” on.
There are currently 33 young people part of our House Project community and we hope that this number will grow over the years to come. The young people get support from the project facilitators, and also one another and we aim to provide opportunities that are tailored to meet each individual young person’s needs.
We are part of the leaving care service in Stoke-on-Trent and work closely with Social Workers and PA’s to ensure that our young people are well supported to be the best theycan be.
