Leaving the care system

Supporting young people who are leaving the care system

Sophia supports young people who are leaving the care system and who also have additional needs requiring support. In most cases this is a support to developing the skills to become ready to enter the private rented market.

These very young adults receive support to manage their finances, cooking skills, learning to manage their tenancy, register for and pay household bills, put together a deposit, manage relationships, understand how their behavior impacts on neighbours and how to sustain their tenancy. They are linked to Aftercare, Employment Services, Health, MABs, Local Authority, addiction and Children and Family Agency services as needed.
