To develop independent living skills and manage a tenancy on your own.

Moving out to live on your own is an important decision which most people have to make at some point. Depending on circumstances moving to your own place can be a very exciting time, but it can also be a complete stress. You will be faced with some questions you may not have had to think about before.

  • Will I get benefits?

  • Do I have to pay council tax?
  • Will there be carpets?
  • How will I afford furniture?

Young Person Quote "HomeLink has helped me get furniture through HomeAid. I have also been given help to decorate my house. I am involved with classes at the project and have learned to cook, budget & meet new friends."
