A chance for a new start

 

HOMES for young people who need help to start living independently are being created in Yate.

A total of 28 people at a time will be helped thanks to two schemes involving a charity, a housing association, businesses and South Gloucestershire Council.

Both projects are aimed at helping people aged between 16 and 25, some leaving care and others either homeless or at risk of homelessness , to learn the skills for independent living.

One new home has already opened and work is underway on the other, which is due to open in the spring.
