Housing Options

Exit Foundation is now proud to present 2 new accommodations which are now available for support for young people:

1. EMERGENCY HOUSING – ILFORD:

Our 28 days stay Emergency/Crisis Placement has been set up to accommodate the cohort of children and young persons who have been newly placed into the care of the Local Authority until a suitable placement can be sourced/obtained for them. Exit Foundation are aware of the difficulties encountered in finding suitable and homely accommodation for young people at short notice and have built and designed our facility for this exact requirement. Our emergency provision is operated like a traditional family home – warm, inviting, loving and personable so that the residents can call it ‘home’ for the short period of time that they are with us.

This is an activities-based provision: To keep YP stimulated and to provide the best possible experience of the care system our YP will be taken out to different activities every day. Go-karting, climbing, indoor skiing, gymnasium, museums, ice-skating, swimming, bowling, and movie evening are just a few named activities that are provided for our students.

If required Exit Foundation will provide a DOLS service and/or any other relevant short-term support required in our Emergency Provision.

N.B. This accommodation can be utilised for other Local Authority emergency needs.
