Enfield Lodgings

depaulWhat is Enfield Lodgings?

Enfield Council have comissioned Depaul UK, Britain's biggest youth homelessness charity, to recruit and train households within Enfield to provide lodgings for vulnerable young people in the borough.

This is a radical and effective response to the lack of affordable safe housing in Enfield for young people who are not yet confident to live completely independently. We ask local people who have room in their lives and homes to take in a young lodger so that their first experience of living without support is within the home of a friendly household who they can call upon when they need a listening ear or someone to pass on a favorite recipe.

Enfield council decided to do this because they know that young people who cannot afford to live alone would rather live with someone who has applied to help through a charity and undergone a police check than with a stranger who's number they found on the internet.

Who is Enfield Lodgings for?

Lodgers are aged 16-25, they can stay for 6 months to 2 years, and households receive £82 per week in rent.

Although this scheme is new to Enfield, Depaul UK have been supporting households who in turn support young people for over 10 years. One host who has had three young people live with her in the past 6 years says: "Providing Lodgings is so much more rewarding than having an empty bedroom gathering dust, I am now the proud godmother of one ex lodger's little girl, and I recently attended the graduation of another".
