Are there people you’d like to live with?

Moving from the family home to live independently could end up being a lonely experience, especially if you find it hard to make new friends.

So, the first step into independent living could be done as a small group of friends living together.

There are real benefits to living with a small group of friends, such as a ready-made social group, but living with a friend can be very different from just having them as your friend.

So, having the chance to live together for short periods of time can help the group decide:

  • if they would like to live together
  • which household jobs they will need to share
  • what house rules they might like to put in place
  • what support would be needed.
