How we can help

Our members of staff have many years of experience working with young people. We will work with you to identify exactly what services and support you need. This will be agreed in your support plan and regularly reviewed with you.

Our aim is to help you cope with the challenges you are facing in your life. This might include:

  • help dealing with homelessness or the risk of homelessness
  • help finding somewhere to live
  • help with practical tasks such as budgeting, maintenance tasks in the home and household chores
  • maintaining good mental health and dealing with periods of crisis such as self harming
  • emotional support with ongoing issues such as isolation or low self esteem
  • help to manage the negative consequences of involvement in criminal activity
  • help with increasing social networks, developing communication and social skills, building relationship with family members
  • help maintaining good physical health such as attending doctor, dentist or other health appointments
  • advice and encouragement to adopt a healthy lifestyle, dealing with drug, alcohol or gambling addictions and fostering a positive approach to physical exercise
  • help to start or maintain regular activity such as attending classes, progress a hobby or getting involved in volunteering
  • help with developing the skills to help you move towards employment

As you can see, these services can be wide ranging and will be very specific to your needs. We expect they will change over time as you achieve the goals you have set in your support plan.
