​Supported Lodgings​​​

“You're dealing with young people who might have gone through a lot and aren't ready to be on their own," said Tracy, who provides a home for an 18-year-old. “They're scared and don't know how to handle it, their behaviour declines. The Supported Lodging scheme can really be a lifeline." (Tracy, right, – Supported Lodgings provider)
