Thrive 16+ Service

Information about an accommodation scheme

You could also live in shared, supported accommodation, which caters for young people aged 16 to 25 more generally – not just care leavers.

This is run through an accommodation scheme called Thrive 16+, you can find more information here:

Housing advice for young people aged 16 to 25 (


This type of accommodation can vary in size but is available in all parts of Somerset.


Young people are supported by staff who help you prepare for independent living and your own place in the future.


Thrive 16+ can also help with access to supported accommodation (including emergency accommodation) to prevent you being homeless and support you to register with the district council for housing through ‘Homefinder Somerset’ as well as look for private rented accommodation.
