Schools, education & childcare What young people say about supported lodgings


I’m 23 years old. I went into foster care when I was six years old with my two sisters and brother, and was moved around a few times. Then at 18 years old I moved into supported lodgings. I learned to live independently while in supported lodgings and have been living on my own for two years now.

My supported lodgings worker Sally is so good at her job and an all-round wonderful person. She taught me how to cook, pay bills and manage my money, and she helped me to open up and talk about my problems. She really cares about people and has helped me to become the person I am today. She changed my life for the better.
