Young People, Close Street, Carlisle
We have two types of accommodation for young people in Carlisle. The first is a shared house which can accommodate eight young people between the ages of 16-25. Each young person has their own bed-sitting room and there is a communal living room with TV and internet access, a kitchen and laundry facilities. Within the house, there is also our “Step On Up” Hub, which is a space designed by the young people. The Hub has computers, arts materials, books and is generally just a place where young people can relax, or, a place to get work done – researching, emailing, social networking.
Next door to the shared house we have eight flats for young people. The flats are the next step to independent living and are fully self-contained. Between the two properties there is a shared garden and a safe fenced in area where young people often meet.
At Close Street we have a team of dedicated, experienced staff including night workers on site to assist the young people and help them to maintain their tenancies.
Across our young people’s accommodation we focus on the talents and aspirations of the individual. Whilst staying with us, the young people will have a first class experience of flexible, personalised support and will have lots of opportunities to have fun, learn how to manage a home and live independently. Please give us a ring on 01228 549966 if you’d like to hear more.
