Supported Boarding

The Dingwall Trust’s Supported Boarding Scheme offers accommodation and support to young people deemed ready to move on from state care but are not quite ready to live solely on their own. Supported Boarding acts like a stepping stone from fully supported care to living independently in the wider community.

People with a room to let in their home can apply to become supported boarding providers. An assessment process is undertaken to ensure that providers can offer a safe and supportive environment to those young people living in their home.

The Supporting Boarding Scheme is designed to allow young people to board with people and families in the community, ensuring they have the opportunity to experience independence while in a safe environment. While the young people are supported, they are encouraged to take responsibility for themselves.
