Hi I am looking for some advice on how to set up my own supported lodgings home for 16+. I was a young carer growing up looking after my mother. I have also worked as a support woker
In children's homes and I am now a supported lodging provider for me local council. I am 28 years old and really keen to get started. I have read endless pages online looking for advice I've also spoke with support workers and the council however I am getting know where. Any advice will be much appreciated. TIA

Hi Nay,

Is it correct to say that you are already offering supported living services but to your local council and that you want to start offering supported living service as a private provider?

I'm afraid the council or support workers do not know about how to start a supported living business they only deal with finding the appropriate supported living providers for what the service user need.

I work in the community and assist with finding appropriate supported living providers for young people from 16-18+ and up and know what guidance and regulations document you need to put in place please feel free to email me.
