Wolverhampton House Project is a Local House Project (LHP). All LHP's are members of the National House Project. House Projects support young people leaving care to create their own homes and live connected and fulfilling lives.
House Projects are co-designed with young people. They work together to develop relationships and learn skills that enable them to live successful adult lives. They have a choice in where they live and are involved in getting their property ready to become their home. Islington House Project is represented by young people at the Care Leavers National Movement (CLNM) to ensure that a young person’s voice is at the heart of all decision making. They are joined by representatives from all other LHPs.
