Temporary Accommodation Package (TAP)

Project Summary:

The programme aims to enable young people living in Bed and Breakfast accommodation to prepare for having their own tenancy, aware of the costs and living on a budget. This will include awareness of fuel costs, how to heat their homes efficiently and savings options. The project will provide essential preparation for the time when they have their first home of their own, usually without the support of family. It has been devised with the help of young people and will be co-delivered by a young person who has been long term homeless.
