We offer a unique model of support that is not replicated anywhere else in the UK at present to young males aged 18-25 years with complex needs, history of trauma and/or abuse who have been unable to sustain previous accommodation placements. Through consultation and involvement of young people we try to ensure that the supports offered meet the needs identified by young people.
A minimum of 29 hours support per week is provided through our service. Young people receive housing support (i.e. independent living skills) and therapeutic support (i.e. emotional support, access to counselling, building social networks and strengths etc). Each young person completes a support plan with their key worker, which will specify the supports and goals that they have identified, and this is reviewed regularly. All support offered promotes the empowerment of young people that we support – negotiation with young people is continually employed.
