Carefree have received two-year funding and employed a Housing Development Coordinator who will work with young people who are care experienced to improve their housing options.

The Coordinator will set up a steering group with young people, housing /Council/ and other relevant professionals to develop strategies to ensure the development of housing and make accommodation more accessible for care leavers.

The Coordinator will support young people to campaign for Cornwall to improve its local offer for housing and co-produce with young people a Manifesto for Change and improvement of housing options.

There are two main ways you can get involved:

  1. Be part of the Steering Group and the voice for young people who are care experienced

and/or

  1. Help to write a ‘Manifesto for Change’ specifically for care leavers.  This is a document that you explain what you feel needs to change about the system and the support that you currently receive and highlight what is important for you when you leave care.
