Supported living in a practice apartment by Child Welfare Services

Supported living in a practice apartment is primarily intended for young people moving out of children's homes.

The young person is committed to the supported living in a practice apartment and its rules.

He or she has a daily schedule or a plan for the daily schedule.

Both single-bedroom and multi-bedroom apartments are available for practice apartments. One multi-bedroom apartment houses two or three people. They are intended for either boys or girls. The period of supported living in a practice apartment may be from a few months to two years.

The unit for supported living is responsible for the upkeep of the young people. To cover the costs the basic amount for a 10-17 year old child or for an adult living alone is used as directive. This covers their food costs, spending funds and travel cards, for example. Other income of the young person may affect the amount of allowance intended for supported living. The young people do not pay any rent for the supported living in a practice apartment.

A personal counsellor will be appointed to the young person during the period of supported living in a practice apartment. The counsellors work morning and evening shifts and meet with the client, as agreed upon. They will help the client to take care of their personal businesses.

No intoxicants can be used or kept in the practice apartments. Smoking in the apartments is prohibited. Any visits from friends have to be agreed upon separately with the counsellors. No pets can be brought into the practice apartments.

Supported living in a practice apartment is applied for via the Client Counselling.
