Our shared houses provide lower level support within shared accommodation as a stepping stone towards an independent tenancy. The move-on houses are part of our supported accommodation pathway.

You could be eligible if:

  • You are aged 17 to 24
  • You are in housing need
  • You require some support
  • You go to education, training or employment

What are move on houses?

The Y has several move on houses across Leicester City with 5 bedrooms with shared bathrooms, lounges, kitchens and gardens. The rent includes utilities, TV licences and council tax making it a simple process to budget and prioritise. There will be up to 5 people living in each house with en-suite bedrooms, shared bathrooms, lounges and courtyard gardens.


Support is available Monday to Saturday with an on call team for emergencies. Our experienced housing officers will provide tailored 1 to 1 support to address things such as rent arrears, housing applications and bidding, moving on to independent tenancies and sustaining those with support based on your individual needs. This will include developing independent living skills and helping you to retain your education, training or work placement in order to give you every chance at succeeding.
