About this service

South Coast Supported Lodgings supports young people in Sussex aged 16-21 who are facing a housing crisis or who are leaving care.

Each young person is paired with a suitable host who offers accommodation and support in their own home. Our hosts help the young people who stay with them to become more confident and prepare for independent living. Hosts support young people with basic practical skills such as cooking, shopping and budgeting. They also help them to develop personal and social skills and to get into education, training or employment. This is an opportunity for each young person to experience the support of an interested adult who can be a positive role model in their life. This rewarding role is accompanied by a host payment of £150+ per week depending on need of the young person placed.
