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 (aged 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 do not 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 are ready to take on the responsibility of their first rented home.
