MALA Supported Living provides a resource for young people aged between 16-25 years of age, who are looked after by the Local Authority and are preparing to live independently. MALA Supported Living offers a sensitive environment that enables the young person to re-address issues pertinent to their specific needs whether this is “Low”, “Medium” or “High”. This may then help them live appropriately in the community. MALA Supported Living accepts young people from diverse religious, cultural, ethnic and sexuality backgrounds including young people from the “Unaccompanied Minors” and those of “Refugee” status.
The purpose of MALA Supported Living is to focus on the needs of each individual. We work in partnership with other organisations ensuring that the well-being of the young person is paramount. Primarily MALA Supported Living offers a holistic approach to child care in an effort to redress the imbalance that some children face in the care system due to discrimination, racism and negative stereotyping of sexuality, which is unfortunately a reality for many young people looked after today.
