The project has received some positive feedback from a Social Worker…

"I feel it needs to be said and heard somewhere of the amazing things you and the team have achieved with this last cohort of young people who have taken part in the house project. Particularly my young person, who would more than likely be on a different, less positive path if it wasn’t for the patience and commitment the House Project. My young person has said on a number of occasions how grateful he is to have people like Rapinder and Naz there for him when he needs support. My young person temporarily moved back home to live with his mother whilst he awaits the keys for his new accommodation, this move would not have been possible 12 months ago. I truly feel the change in this young person is because of the lessons he has been taught during the House Project Group activities. Not only is this Young Person now able to transition into adulthood and independent living with ease, he has also made a number of lifelong friends with shared experiences"

A huge well done to the team and also to our young person for his commitment to the project.

CYPNow - NHP Supports Care Leaver Apprentices
CYPNow - NHP Supports Care Leaver Apprentices

The National House Project (NHP) has been hosting apprentices since 2021. The organisation, which was incorporated as a charity in 2018, works with local authorities that have set up their own Local House Project (LHP), a scheme that helps young people leave care in a planned and supported way. Young people, both in and leaving care, are brought together in groups to create their first homes, learn new skills and join a long-term community of support that can develop pathways into education, employment and training. With 17 LHPs established across England, involving more than 700 young people, around half of these local projects provide apprenticeships as part of their offer, explains Sue Hammersley, director of NHP. There have been three young people so far that have undertaken an apprenticeship with NHP. Hammersley says all apprenticeships offered at NHP and across the LHPs are business administrative roles, although one project in Oxford has offered a participation apprenticeship after linking in with a local college.
