Ipswich Supported Housing for 16-21 Year Olds

Our Supported Housing – with Housing Related Support (HRS) – accommodation is for 16-21 year old, single young people in need of supported accommodation. The provision is staffed 24/7, 365 days every year. Young people can stay in this accommodation for up to 2 years in order to complete their support plan and gain the skills they will need in order to move on to independent living.

We have two types of accommodation available for our HRS Supported Housing. We have self-contained flats and hostel rooms.

The self-contained flats all have their own kitchen and bathroom. The flats are located in zoned areas as we have found that young people thrive better in smaller communities.

The hostel rooms are in a separate three story building, with shared bathrooms on each floor, a kitchen, living room and laundry facilities. Two of these floors are dedicated to our HRS provision.
