Young People Services

Our Young People Services offer a person-centred service which enables vulnerable young people to live independently in the community.

Our team of highly skilled staff offer one-to-one support in a range of outcomes to help vulnerable young people achieve independence, maintain their health and wellbeing and prevent crisis from occurring.

Our dedicated staff act as a facilitator, linking between the young person and the appropriate services, using advocacy and removing barriers for individuals who require support within the community. This helps build the resilience and confidence of the individuals we work with, resulting in greater independence and better life chances.

Our specialised staff will:

  • Provide flexible person-centred support to identify and support your needs, both short and long term
  • Ensure the support is delivered in response to the individuals needs, allowing them to maintain their accommodation and improve their health and wellbeing
  • Offer support that will allow the individual to access the services appropriate for them including signposting to other organisations or services where necessary
  • Follow the principle of the 'No Wrong Door' network to ensure that all individuals gain access to a support service that is right for them.
  • Promote and provide social integration and financial stability
  • Regularly review and monitoring of the individuals progress
  • Raise and support the aspirations of the individual towards a self-sustaining and independent life
  • Provide support that is timely and available at the point of need

Below are services that we current offer to young people across the Midlands:

This service is for single people aged between 16- 25 years old, who find themselves living in precarious housing and who would benefit from accommodation with support.

Our furnished accommodation is located across Birmingham in Camp Hill, Erdington, and Highgate.

There is a skilled and experienced staff team available during core hours to offer key worker support for up to six hours per week. We work in partnership with young people, undertaking a strengths-based needs assessment and support the individual to make informed decisions around addressing their identified support needs and goals.

The service forges links with other services, for example counselling services, health services and drug and alcohol support; acknowledging any barriers to access services and removing them. Thus building the resilience and confidence of the individuals we work with, resulting in greater independence, community links and better life chances.

We enjoy celebrating progress and success with people against their own goals and outcomes throughout their 6 month to 2 year stay at the service and are pleased to offer support when people feel it is the right time to move on.

Alternatively, you can call this service on 0121 226 5806.

Our Young People Lead Worker Service is for individuals aged between 16-24 years old, who find themselves living in precarious housing or at risk of eviction but not statutorily homeless as defined by the Homeless Reduction Act.

The service we provide is person-centred and the amount of support available is flexible, depending on needs and preferences and up to five hours in total per week, either in the person’s current accommodation or a mutually agreed location.

Staff work with each individual to identify needs and to support the individual to make informed decisions around addressing any identified support needs through a planning and review process.

Lead Workers operate as ‘community navigators’, forging links with other services, for example counselling services, health services and drug and alcohol support; acknowledging any barriers to access services and removing them. Thus building the resilience and confidence of the individuals we work with, resulting in greater independence, community links and better life chances.

We enjoy celebrating progress and success with people against their own goals and outcomes throughout their 6 month to 2 year stay at the service and are pleased to offer support when people feel it is the right time to move on. However, should people need to access the service again we are able to ‘reignite’ customer records and do our best to offer the same support worker in line with a ‘tell your story once’ principle.
