The Brighton Young Families Service provides supported accommodation to young parents and families in the Brighton area.
The service consists of two specialist schemes with self contained, one and two bedroom flats with an office on site in each scheme, and six self-contained flats at various locations across the city.
You will have your own allocated support worker who meets with you weekly to provide a range of support covering things like budgeting, maintaining a tenancy, looking after your home and linking in with education, training or work. This is alongside working closely with health visitors and any social workers related to the family.
Every customer also has a support plan that reflects your support needs and aspirations. Support workers regularly review your plan with you to make sure that it still reflects your needs.
As well as individual support work, we also provide a drop-in and telephone support for customers Monday-Friday 9.00am -5.00pm.
Customers can stay at the scheme for up to two years, after which we provide you with support to find suitable independent accommodation in the local area.
Referrals have to be made to Brighton & Hove City Council’s Homeless Department who will arrange for a homeless assessment to be carried out. We accept referrals from midwives, Health Visitors, Family Nurse Practitioners and Social Workers.
If accepted as homeless, the council will place the family on a waiting list specific to our service and an offer will be made to you once a vacancy becomes available.
