The House Project takes a ground-breaking approach through its commitment to young people’s ownership to enable young people leaving care to achieve successful independence.

The Project was co-designed with young people from the start and works on cooperative principles through which adults and young people in and leaving care work together to refurbish properties that become their homes and build a long-term community of support.

The project began by asking young people ‘what makes a house a home?’ and this formed the basis of our first film in 2015.
