Gap Homes 31 Mar 2018

A Gap Home is a transitional home plus support – designed for care leavers and other vulnerable young people. It will provide quality, manageable and affordable accommodation and the time and space needed to make a positive transition to independent living. A Gap home is owned by Barnardo’s and rented to a young care leaver for whom we provide a consistent relationship underpinned by practical and emotional support. We will enable young people to develop resilience and the practical skills required for managing any future tenancy, and securing employment, training or education. Each Gap Home is a new build and will provide much needed additional accommodation to existing provision for young care leavers. Each will be built on small pockets of unused land – gap sites – within communities. This is achieved by adapting innovation in house building, enabling us to design a house to fit the space available.
