Alliance Homes' Step-Up Project offers a furnished flat to young people leaving care, providing the opportunity to gain intensive tenancy support and life skills for 13 weeks.
The aim of Step Up is to give a young person a realistic view of what it is like to be responsible for the up keep of a property and all the bills. Although this may sound a bit daunting a support worker will visit weekly to help the young person to establish a cleaning routine and budget for bills, so if difficulties arise they can assist without delay.
Towards the middle of the 13 week period a meeting will be held between the young person, the step up support caseworker and their leaving care advisor to discuss the progress and explore suitable 'move on' accommodation.
This service is accessed by way of a referral from the resource centre within North Somerset Council.

This service is funded by North Somerset Council's Supporting People Initiative.
