Home to 91 young people aged 16-25, our housing service provides a safe and welcoming place where residents can find the support, skills and confidence they need to move on to independent living.

Our city centre building provides a mix of furnished one-bed studio flats and four and six bed clusters with shared kitchen/lounge areas, all with en-suite shower and toilet facilities. Completed in July 2011, the £4m transformation of East Street realised our vision to create exciting, high quality living spaces that young people can be proud to call home. Residents from all sites get free access to the fitness studio, sports facilities and reduced tickets to The Y Theatre based at East Street.
Three spacious flats at East Street and four at Aylestone have been specially kitted out to suit young people with physical disabilities who are making the transition from the home or care environment.
|"There isn't anything like this in the city that gives young disabled people the opportunity to try out living independently for the first time. These flats offer a safe environment with lots of support, a social network and great city centre location." - Leicester Disabled Children's Service|
