What is carbrey housing about?
Carbrey Housing was established in 2011 when a contract with Gloucestershire County Council was secured to provide accommodation and support services to young people aged 16-18 leaving the care of the local authority.
Upon referral we source suitable accommodation and liaise with the young person and their social worker to create a tailored support package. Our aim is to ready young people we support for independent living post 18 years.
Most young people who present to us have complex needs; often they have difficulties managing the transition from adolescence to adulthood. Many young people are isolated from their families. Many have experienced detrimental schooling and childhood resulting in low self-esteem and confidence. We are committed to provide a safe and secure home and to giving a voice to these young people enabling them to believe in themselves to progress, develop and grow.
The transition from childhood, through adolescence and into adulthood can be a daunting one. Carbrey Housing believes that a robust support package combined with excellent accommodation will give each young person the platform needed to succeed.
Carbrey Housing is regulated by Gloucestershire County Council and must undergo a rigorous annual inspection and tendering process. This process sets out the minimum requirements needed to provide services of this type.
