SERVICES WE OFFER

Accomodation for young people
in transition to independent living

We support young person that Looked After Children (LAC) and Care Leavers in building their confidence and life skills for them to be able to transition towards independent living. We make this happen with the staff and key workers equipped to support young persons as they work towards their goals and build their future out.

We maintain the standard of our semi-independent living arrangements by conducting annual inspections in line with the Council’s standards and ratings. We can offer better quality care, support and housing because we have to answer to our inspectors. Our team also offers advice and support to help them on their journey to employment and independence.

CARE LEAVER

A care leaver is a young person aged 16-25 years old who has been ‘looked after’ at some point since they were 14 years old, and were in care on or after their 16th birthday.

Care leavers are entitled to some ongoing help and support from Children’s Services after they leave care. The leaving care age in England is 18 years old, however some young people do leave care aged 16 or 17.

LOOKED AFTER CHILDREN

Looked after children' (LAC) means children in public care, who are placed with foster carers, in residential homes or with parents or other relatives. Children become looked after when their parents are unable to provide ongoing care in either a temporary or permanent capacity.

Children can either be looked after as a result of a voluntary agreement by their parents or as the result of a care order made by a court. Children may be placed with family members, friends or foster carers depending on individual circumstances.

What we specialize in

Education and Training Support

We believe that every young person’s future can be solidified through education. We make sure every young person who is placed with us can have access to education. We work on language proficiency for the young persons whose first language is not English, because it is essential for survival and living in the UK.

We get to know the young person and listen to their dreams and goals and start working from there. Not only do we work towards the course they want, we also make it a point to provide training to the young person in line with their interest to encourage them and enrich their skills.

Mentorship

For every young person we accomodate in our placement, we see a child in them who may have made choices that weren’t the wisest. They are still growing and learning, so we make sure they can be mentored. Our mentorship initiative will only bring the best for the young person. This will allow them to create relationships, trust, and confidence to live independently and morally right.

We look for mentors that suit the young person, their needs and concerns. We start with assessment and go with the mentorship with the young person’s interest and wellbeing in mind.
