Covid-19 UPDATE...

Our 16+ services have switched to crisis response and adapted and enhanced a lot of what we deliver.

Our service had been providing emotional support to young people via our social media platforms.

Some of the pressure points and challenges for our services working with care leavers and care experienced young people are around the mental
health of young people including suicidal ideation, self-harm and distress; drug and alcohol abuse and risks with regards overdose; domestic violence; increased vulnerability to CSE and criminal exploitation; financial crisis and associated vulnerabilities and exploitation; homelessness- young people locked down in vulnerable situations and little recourse to move within or out with temporary accommodation.

Service details...

Working with young careleavers aged from 15 1/2 to 26 years

Supporting the transition from Care to independent living, with follow on services providing skills, knowledge and access to 1:1 advice. Including access to supported lodgings, help getting a job and on the Job Training.
