Supported lodgings are used for 16 to 24-year-olds. They are used as a bridge between having been in care and living alone as an adult.
There is no formal definition of supported lodgings and no regulatory framework. However, any adult who offers lodgings will have to be approved by children’s services. Some are already approved foster carers. The person providing supported lodgings should receive support and training, from children’s services.
