The Doncaster House Project has been working with 17 young people working towards successful independent living.
The House Project Programme is incorporated into our weekly group meetings to help young people learn vital skills for their future. Our young people work together as a community to build relationships and support one another. Each week the group decide which core skill they want to improve on for example, budgeting their allowances and cooking for a group. These sessions are informative and delivered in a relaxed enabling environment to ensure that they can express their wishes and feelings for the future and feel a sense of achievement.At some point in their lives, the young people of Doncaster will leave home. The House Project educates them with the necessary skills and confidence to live independently, in suitable and affordable accommodation. Once we have identified their forever homes, young people are supported by House Project staff to decorate and furnish their home exactly how they wish.
