Independent Supported Accommodation 17-25
Belinda Ferrison House is a Northampton based ISA provision which specialises in the care, support and education of vulnerable care leavers and young adults through supported living services, outreach and training.
Our purpose at Belinda Ferrison House is to provide a high standard of accommodation and supportive environments for care leavers aged between 17-25 years. This service is to ensure the care leavers are able to develop and maintain respect, self-reliance and self-care skills and enable them to make informed, age-appropriate decisions, concerning their present and future so they can achieve a successful transition into independence and adulthood.
Our aim is to prevent young people from becoming homeless, socially excluded and be able to maintain a tenancy when they leave care. The staffing team at Belinda Ferrison House will assess the needs of the young people and assist them to build the skills required to live independently ensuring a positive quality of life after care and working in line with the Every Child Matters outcomes.
