Accessing your own accommodation can be tricky!
Before you move out make sure that you get information on all options available to you by accessing YMCA East Surrey (14-25’s). They can advise you on housing for young people in the East Surrey area, like renting a room or accessing supported accommodation.
When looking at renting a room you need to think about a deposit, rent in advance, having a guarantor and how much rent you can afford. At the YMCA they can help you create a personal action plan to ensure that moving out goes as smoothly as it can. Also, they can help prepare you to live independently and give advice on topics like looking for rented accommodation, knowing your rights as a tenant, budgeting, health living, saving, and drugs & alcohol.
