Warwickshire House Project goes from strength to strength

Warwickshire House Project goes from strength to strength

Posted 29th September 2022

The Warwickshire House Project has received positive feedback in its annual review for 2021/22, completed by the National House Project.

The report illustrates the comprehensive support provided to care leavers in the county as well as plans to develop the project in the future.

Commissioned by Warwickshire County Council, The Warwickshire House Project works closely with care leavers to identify the learning and support they need to move out of care and into their new home. This home then becomes a base for them to become independent and transition into adulthood. The project is currently supporting its fifth group of young care leavers who joined at the beginning of September.

As part of the project, young people are encouraged to maintain and sustain their tenancies by developing a community of support around them. They are supported into education, employment, and training and they are taught skills such as learning to cook a variety of meals, managing budgets by providing financial training, and advice and support on maintaining their home.

The report said: “…it is great to see young people coming together and dropping in to spend time with the staff. It is evident that young people have a real sense of ownership of their base.”

The report also noted that the “young people clearly love coming together, eating together and making plans for the project and their future.”
