I love BYPHS because they have helped me and supported me to be more independent and helped me maintain college because if I hadn’t come onto BYPHS I would have dropped out of college. I am now able to do budgeting with my money like pay my service charge and get some shopping. The Mentors have helped me with my appointments by supporting me at the Parallel and my doctors. I can speak to any member of staff at the Drop In if I have a problem or need help with anything.

These are 40+ units of accommodations including self contained flats and shared houses across the borough. They are fully decorated, furnished and equipped to support independent living.
Residents are supported to move in, manage the property and move on at the appropriate time. The aim is that after a period of time, the young person moves into their own secure accommodation having acquired the skills and the knowledge required to manage on their own.
Whilst the young person lives on the scheme they will be provided with a support package that is designed for them.
These are 8 units of temporary accommodation in a family or young adults home. Accommodation (usually a spare room) is provided by that family or individual who are trained and supported to allow young people to live with them. the householder will support the young person on a daily basis with independent living and a support worker will assist to manage the placement.
