Commissioning of Supported Accommodation for Care Leavers Aged 16+

The report will seek approval to establish a framework of suitable and competent providers of supported accommodation to be accessed when necessary to support some young people who are leaving council care.  These services will be one part of a wide ranging choice of living arrangements for young people once they reach leaving care age, to ensure all young people have the opportunity to make a successful transition to independent life as they grow up.
