Finding somewhere to live should include information about:

  • Finding accommodation - including information about different housing options such as social housing, housing association accommodation, private renting, shared housing and shared ownership;
  • How to apply for accommodation, and where to get financial and other support (such as a personal assistant, assistive technology or modifications to a home) and more detailed advice on accommodation;
  • Advice, for people eligible for social care or health support, about what support is available to help them personally, for example in managing their personal budget or recruiting a personal assistant; and
  • Opportunities and support to learn the skills needed to live in supported, semi supported or independent accommodation. 

The Mix is the largest support service in the UK for people under 25, providing help, information and support – 24/7 and 365 days a year. Visit their website for more details.
