These properties provide young people aged 16 – 24 years with access to short-term, stable and affordable accommodation, along with outreach support from a caseworker to develop skills to manage finances, health and/or connect with education and job opportunities, and skills to obtain and sustain tenancy in rental accommodation.

All transitional accommodation applications must be supported by a Samaritans Specialist Homelessness Services caseworker, there are no direct applications available for these properties. Applicants must be eligible for Samaritans Specialist Homelessness Service support.
