Nini Supported Living offers Semi-Independent Accommodation to young people aged 16 to 25 years and who have been ‘Looked After by the Local Authority’. The accommodation is normally shared by young people of similar age and capacity. However, some young people may have an assessed need to be accommodated in a standalone flat. We ensure their voice is heard by all professionals and family members involved in their care. We support them to develop life skills that will support them to have a secure and stable life after 25 years. Supporting young people to secure and sustain education and employment is key to our intervention at Nini Supported Living Service.
