Baca seek to provide homes that make the young people feel comfortable and safe. They are a place they can recover from what they have been through and start to look to their futures. Our houses are situated in locations that are suitable for our young people in terms of safety and sensitivity to culture. The accommodation is also near local amenities such as colleges, youth clubs, leisure centres, shopping areas, churches, mosques etc.
Baca are always open to investigating setting up additional homes so we can support more young people in current locations or in other counties, in partnership with local authorities.
Within each home, a young person will have the following as a minimum in their bedroom:
The young people have access to a shared bathroom (with shower), lounge with entertainment, dining area, kitchen with all required cooking utensils, laundry facilities and an outdoor space.
All of our houses comply with the local standards for HMOs and the requirements of Housing Acts, Housing Health and Safety Rating system (HHSRS) 2006, Public Health/Buildings Acts 1936-84, Fire Safety regulations 1988 and amendments. We are also flexible to provide any further standards that a local authority might require.
Baca believes that providing quality living spaces teaches young people how to live sustainably and how to maintain positive life skills. We will always endeavour to ensure that the quality of our properties reflect those values.
