Wolverhampton House Project is a Local House Project (LHP). All LHP's are members of the National House Project, who help young people leaving care to create their own home and live independently.
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. Wolverhampton 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.

This last year has seen the NHP being successful in getting grant funding from a number of Grantmakers. We have received grant funding of over £400,000, some of which will go towards the core funding of the organisation and some will be restricted towards additionality that the Charity brings to our young people. Grantmakers who have awarded us with grants include Greenwood Place, The Leathersellers’ Foundation, CHK Foundation, Garfield Weston and Arnold Clark.Read more
