Setting up Supported Living for Looked After Children (16-18)

luciano martin 16/08/17 General Housing Topics

I am interested in setting up a Supported Living Service for LAC/Care-Leavers (16-18) and would like some advice on what the set up requirements are? I am starting from scratch and have only set up the company.

I would like to hear from people that have successfully set up such a service that can guide me through the process in great detail (Policies needed, getting commissioned placements, operating procedures, staffing requirements etc)

I believe this service does NOT require Ofsted/CQC registration? (initially anyway until the business grows).

If you are an experienced Service Manager that is interested in a new venture to help me start up then also get in touch.

I am also looking to set up supported housing for are leavers.
I have set up a community interest company, but the local authority now want to know how much ill charge per week for the support and the accommodation per resident.
I really don't know what figures to give.
For the housing side, that would be easy but the support side I don't know what I can charge for or how much I should charge.
This this makes sense to anyone, I would be grateful for a response.
