CYPNow - NHP Supports Care Leaver Apprentices
CYPNow - NHP Supports Care Leaver Apprentices

The National House Project (NHP) has been hosting apprentices since 2021. The organisation, which was incorporated as a charity in 2018, works with local authorities that have set up their own Local House Project (LHP), a scheme that helps young people leave care in a planned and supported way. Young people, both in and leaving care, are brought together in groups to create their first homes, learn new skills and join a long-term community of support that can develop pathways into education, employment and training. With 17 LHPs established across England, involving more than 700 young people, around half of these local projects provide apprenticeships as part of their offer, explains Sue Hammersley, director of NHP. There have been three young people so far that have undertaken an apprenticeship with NHP.
