Pathways to Independence (P2i) works with Somerset County Council, five District Councils and two major Housing Providers in Somerset in order to provide a range of services, all under one roof in P2i Hubs.
P2i’s goal is to enable young people to live independently from their services but to be there while they need a hand. They don’t want to see our young people on the streets, or sofa surfing, or living in an unsafe home, tell them what you want from your future, whether it is your own place, a regular job or even just help with budgeting, and they can go with you as you take steps to achieve both long and short term goals. They aim to not only provide young people with a safe place to stay in the short term if needed, but allow them to plan and achieve their own personal goals for their futures.
If you are aged between 16-25 (inclusive) and are in need of housing advice, or in a housing crisis, drop into one of their Hubs to access housing advice, information, help with accommodation and much more, from professionals including, the District Council Housing Options Teams, County Council Leaving Care Workers and targeted youth support intervention workers.
