Helping young people thrive

Settle is an award-winning charity that supports care-experienced young people as they move into their first home so they can confidently transition into independent living and thrive.

Empowering young people to feel in control of their own lives

We believe that with the right support, care-experienced young people can make lasting change in their own lives. We provide intensive 1:1 support and coaching, tailored to the individual. Our sessions are flexible and led by the young person, centred around growing their strengths and removing systemic barriers that restrict their opportunities. Our goal is to create consistent, transformative relationships that young people can rely on.

Tackling homelessness before it happens

Care-experienced young people lose almost all of the available support after they age out of the care system. We’ve identified the transition of moving into a first home as the most impactful point to intervene – avoiding eviction and homelessness while setting up the foundations for their lives. By focusing on prevention and early intervention we’re tackling a leading cause of youth homelessness before it happens.

Breaking the cycle of youth homelessness

The Settle Programme is designed to support young people facing difficult transitions to adulthood and help them avoid debt, eviction and poor life outcomes. We work with young people to build the foundations for the lives that they want and to make their house into a home.
