Young People’s Supported Accommodation

About The Service

Young People’s Supported Accommodation (YPSA) provides supported accommodation in Buckinghamshire and South Oxfordshire to give a specific route for young people (16-25 years) facing homelessness.

What can we help with?

Young people referred to us by Oxfordshire County Council will be provided with their own accommodation and regular visits from a Support Worker to help them gain confidence in living independently.

Support can include:

  • Daily living tasks such as cooking, budgeting, looking after their tenancy & paying bills.
  • Claiming benefits to assist with rent and day to day expenses.
  • Registering with a local GP.
  • Help with finding a college place or vocational training.
  • Assistance with finding employment, including support with putting together a CV.
  • Emotional support.
  • Mediation with family or friends
  • Support with any other needs that may arise while they are with us.

What we cannot help with

We are unable to provide accommodation and support without a referral or for a young person who does not have a social worker or other professional involved in their care.
We don’t offer 24-hour staffed accommodation.

How will it work?

Each Young Person will be offered furnished accommodation & be issued with their own licence agreement. They will be allocated their own key worker who will meet with them regularly to support them with daily living skills & their move towards independence. They can expect a strengths-based support plan to be put in place to help them achieve their goals & support with finding “move on” accommodation.

Who is this service for?

Young People (16-25 years) who have left the care system and ready to take on the responsibility of their first rented home.
