Midlothian House Project was launched on the 1st July 2020. Through our work with Midlothian Champions Board we are aware that housing support is an area in which care experienced young people would like more support. National statistics also inform us that housing outcomes for care experienced young people are poor. In particular this group of young people are far more likely to experience repeated episodes of homelessness and tenancy breakdowns.

As we come to end of our 2nd year, we are delighted to have worked with 20 young people with 70% now in their own permanent properties. Through excellent partnership working with many services our amazing young people have taken the lead to create their forever homes. Our young people are proud to part of community who can share their own successes (and struggles) to help their peers.

Last year at this time, I would never have imagined having my own house and having a good job, the support from Midlothian House project has helped me achieve this Lauren Cohort 2.
