Following a young person's initial assessment with Doorway we invite them to attend a New Home Workshop.  This enables young people  to learn and understand the responsibilities involved in managing and sustaining their own tenancy.

The course covers topics, such as;

  • Moving in - All you need to know
  • Budgeting, debts and money management
  • Paying bills
  • The costs of living on your own
  • Housing options
  • Tips to keep bills down
  • Personal safety and security
  • Effective shopping
  • Understanding agreements

As well as providing lots of useful information and contact numbers, clients also receive an accredited AQA Certificate for completing the course.  

The workshop lasts approximately 2 hours and is usually held at Doorway in group sessions or on a one to one to meet client need
