Support for children aged 0-25 with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Housing - where to live

We want all young people in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole to be able to choose where they live and who they live with.

Some young people may want to continue to live with family or carers and others will want to move out of the home they have shared with family and live with friends or even independently.

The information on these pages provides advice and guidance on the housing options available in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole and how young people and families can support each other to identify the most appropriate living arrangements to meet each young person’s individual needs and wishes.

Visit the Daily Living Skills section for information and advice on things including cooking, managing money and making friends.
