Residential accommodation partners

During the second week of The Challenge’s programme (The Team Challenge), participants live independently for the first time. For Summer 2011, we are looking for residential settings which meet the following criteria:



– Accommodation for up to 72 people (approx. 60 youth aged 16 and 12 staff)

– Possibility to split boys and girls into separate blocks

– If accommodation is amongst other people then our section must be in a separate area/floor/ block/ part of the building

– Able to manage changeovers: each week the groups of young people and staff would change with groups arriving on a Sunday evening and departing on a Friday morning.

– Accommodation blocks should have entrance and exits that can be watched by one person easily (i.e. one entrance/exit per block all exiting onto the same location)

– Drivable-to canteen facilities to cater for evening meals (and maybe breakfast)


– Single rooms

– En-suite facilities

– Shared kitchen facilities

– Facility to provide packed lunches

– Nearby meeting space for up to 72 people together in the evening between 7-9pm

– Nearby meeting space for 5 groups of 15 in the evening between 7-9pm
