For David, joining the 3 Bridge Solution team in November 2021 is a welcome return to managing a Supported Lodgings service.
“I have managed a variety of supported accommodation schemes and based on my own experience; Supported Lodgings provides the best outcomes for young people. I am delighted to be managing a Supported Lodgings service once more”.
David’s experience includes delivering services for Adults with Learning Disabilities, Homelessness, Supported Housing and Supported Lodgings services for care leavers and young people facing homelessness.
David trains Hosts and staff on Being a Host, Supporting the Needs of Young People, Safeguarding, Equality and Diversity, LGBT+ Awareness and Mental Health; David is an accredited trainer with Mental Health First Aid England (MHFA).
“Supported Lodgings is the safest and most nurturing environment for young people. Supporting Hosts in the development of positive relationships with young people is what makes managing a Supported Lodgings service so unique. It is almost impossible to put into words just how rewarding it is to play a part in turning a young person’s life around; and sharing that experience with our Hosts is equally rewarding”.
