VCare 24 Supported Living

Our supported living is aimed at 16yrs – 18yrs to help them to gain independence within the community while still having 24 hours support in a secure environment.

Our Supported Living Team work closely with Social Services and other professionals to help optimise the progression of independent living.

Supported living for 16-18 year olds

Most of our placements are in semi-rural locations. We try to place them where there is a good network for schools and colleges, were they can be encouraged to continue their education.

Our staff encourage the young person to engage with education or employment through Apprenticeship helping them find placements. Our staff give guidance with drug/alcohol and sexual health issues.

Our team help the young person and teach life skills in:

  • Budgeting
  • Personal Hygiene
  • Cooking
  • Cleaning
  • Healthy Relationships
  • We even encourage them to take driving lessons once old enough
