Supported Lodgings

Do you have a spare room and a willingness to help young people?

Llamau has over 30 years’ experience of working with vulnerable young people and runs Supported Lodgings Schemes in the Vale of Glamorgan, Carmarthenshire and Bridgend.

The Scheme has been running for several years, and has been successful in helping a number of young people gain the skills and confidence to become independent young adults. It aims to find supportive accommodation for young people who cannot live at home, and is always on the lookout for new supported lodgings providers.

You don’t need any special qualifications and lodgings providers come from a variety of backgrounds. It doesn’t matter whether you are married or single, working or unemployed, we’d like to hear from you.

All you need is a spare bedroom, and a willingness to help a young person develop the skills they will need to move on eventually into their own home.

In return for your help, you will receive full training, a regular weekly payment to cover your costs, and ongoing support from Llamau.

The scheme runs in Bridgend County, Carmarthenshire and the Vale of Glamorgan only. The schemes in each county are run and administered separately by Llamau.

If you are interested in getting involved with our Supported Lodging Scheme, please contact the appropriate person in your county for a friendly, informal discussion to see if this is right for you.

“We have been Supported Lodgings providers for over four years and really enjoy the role and the difference we can make to a young person’s life.

It isn’t always easy having a young person move into your home, and it would be fair to say the last few years have been a steep learning curve for us. What has really helped us is the support provided by Llamau. We know they are only a phone call away and Kate, the Scheme Co-ordinator, has always been there to support us and provide answers to any questions we may have.

We would happily recommend Supported Lodgings to anyone wishing to have a positive impact on a young person’s life.”

"I have been a provider for Llamau for over a year and provided a home for a number of young people with diverse problems and situations. During this time I have been very impressed with the support that the Llamau team provide.

They are available 24/7 for any issues that arise and always provide advice and support. I doubt I would have continued as a provider without their help. I can discuss anything with them and always feel my problems or worries regarding a young person are dealt with in a positive manner."
