Young People

We support young people aged between 16 and 25 by encouraging them to focus on their strengths and build positive support networks to achieve their aspirations, whether that is returning to education, finding meaningful work or making new friendships.

Our services have a range of specialisms, including supporting young people who are:

  • Care leavers
  • Overcoming addiction
  • Young parents

Our services for young people include supported housing services and three Foyers, accredited by the Foyer Federation, which provide a safe place for young people to live, learn and make the transition to independent adulthood.

We also offer move-on services to help residents find and maintain their own independent accommodation, as well as floating support or community outreach services where we provide one-to-one or group support to young people in the community (who don’t live in our properties).

All support is tailored to each person’s individual needs, through a structured care and support plan, which uses the Young Person’s Star model to encourage each person to take control of their lives and work towards achieving their personal goals. Support is focused on eight areas: 

  • Accommodation
  • Work and learning
  • People and support
  • Health
  • How you feel
  • Choices and behaviour
  • Money and rent
  • Practical life skills
