Manchester Settlement is a provider of Young people’s Supported Housing over 3 projects. First Key Homes and Young Peoples Housing Project, offer accommodation and intensive support of on average 3 hours week to LAC, Care Leavers and single homeless persons with support needs.
Our new service Next Step housing provides a step down service bridging the gap for care leavers from supported housing and living independently. Young people aged 16-24 can be referred to Manchester Settlement via various agencies working with the young person.
Manchester Settlement offer an individually tailored package of support which includes help with budgeting, form filling, claiming benefits, introduction to facilities and services, how to be a good neighbour and live independently and successfully in the community.
In this time, our dedicated and experienced support staff, intensively support young people around budgeting, paying bills, accessing education, employment and training.
Our main aim is to get our young people moved on living in the community independently. We do this by working around 5 areas of the young people’s lives supporting them to be healthy, be safe, make a positive contribution, enjoy life achieving their goals and maintain economic wellbeing.
