Individual Youth Support
We offer a responsive and effective one to one support package for young people in a formal capacity (over several weeks) or as an informal discussion. We support individuals to identify (and help us to understand) their needs. This could be with regards to health, wellbeing, lifestyle or career aspirations or anything else relevant to enable them to achieve their full potential in their transition to adulthood.
We will work alongside the young person to identify the most suitable way to support them within their communities, to suit them which would be explored with the individual. It may be to access support or information on a particular issue or to access support more long-term or more often.
This service could be to enhance support or as part of a reduction to intervention from other professionals.
We strive to work with their family and in partnership with all who work with the individual, but likewise should the person wish to access support confidentially we will respect this should we feel it is safe to do so.
Should a young person, parents/carer, or professional wish to access this service we would ask you to contact us to discuss.
We recognise the impact and challenges the Coronavirus pandemic has brought about and will continue to do so, therefore where possible we will strive to offer the service to young people at a reduced cost.

Project Development and Consultancy Services
Professional service offering support or information on setting up, developing or enhancing services offered to young people, this can be with other professionals or young people themselves to get an idea off the ground.
We can assist with funding, generating or maintaining the audiences, full consultations to aid development or full set up of a project.
Should you have an idea of a project to bring to life or identify a need for a service we would welcome you to contact us.
We seek funding where possible to assist any delivery or development of our services, firstly to ensure we can offer services to remove the financial barrier to accessing but also to support a multi agency approach where possible, this assists in safeguarding young people but also allows us to support wellbeing by sharing success stories or achievements of our young people when appropriate and we have consent to do so.
We also look to embrace and work closely with other independent businesses local to us that offer services that meet the needs of our young people. We either deliver in association with them or look to signpost people on.
