ROCSOLID

Durham

ROCSOLID provide both 24-hour supported accommodation and floating support in semi-independent housing for vulnerable young people. Their professional support workers help young people access employment, education and training, and support young families to gain independence and learn parenting skills.

LandAid’s £13,500 grant will enable the charity to renovate and convert a three-bedroom house into a one-bed flat and two-bed flat to create three bed spaces for young people who are ready to leave 24-hour supported accommodation.

The support workers will also teach the young residents independent living skills: cooking, budgeting, personal care and healthy lifestyles, support to attend meetings and appointments, emotional support, where necessary, and outings and activities to build confidence and social skills.
