The Resettlement Team has around 45 bed spaces around the city. These units are available for young people to prepare for independent living in a semi-supported housing setting. The single units are primarily for young people referred by either Social Services or Sheffield Youth Justice Service, however, any other referral where funding is provided will be considered.
Roundabout and Sheffield Youth Justice Service developed a scheme to support and enable young people aged 16-18 to live in accommodation as an alternative to custody. This was based upon research which found that ex-offenders released from custody who are homeless are more likely to re-offend. Alongside this, working with Permanence and Through Care, the Resettlement Team can offer single accommodation to young people who are preparing to leave care as a chance to practice independence skills outside of a residential setting.
