Transition to supported lodgings

You are here

My wife and I are foster carers in Scotland, we have a long term placement who will shortly be 18 and will be moving to supported lodgings. We have an attached flat on the house which we were considering for supported lodgings and my wife and SW think this would be perfect for this girl. I am not sure about the transition for her from fully supported foster placement to supported lodgings, in the same place, as I think both her and my wife will just carry on in the same way. I would be interested if anyone has experience of this situation who could give some advice.
