Supported Lodgings

Supported Lodgings, offers lodgings with households in the community, to young people aged 16-25.

Hosts provide a room in their home and non-intrusive support, which aims to equip young people with the skills they need to move on to living independently, in their own accommodation.

Supported Lodgings is for young people who are in or working towards education, training or employment; who want a safe, homely environment, to concentrate on achieving their potential and become successful contributors to the Bedford community.

The supported lodgings team works closely with both the young person and the host, to provide excellent support that helps the young person move forward and flourish in their placement.
