Children’s Services

200- 2

Supported living and other community based support allows young people to return to or remain in their own communities and close to family and friends. It allows a growth in confidence and independence, which in turn leads to increased self-esteem and reduction in behaviours that challenge. It also assists the young person to meet a full range of outcomes, greater social life, far more choice over their lives, increased daily living skills and access to local educational and employment opportunities.

We offer a positive and cost effective alternative to specialist residential or other costly out of area placements, as well as support that prevents a crisis placement. We are also providing continuity of support to the young person through to our adult provision which includes supported living, outreach and day opportunities support.

Involvement of the young person, as well as their family, is key to providing person centred support that offers real choice and progression towards agreed outcomes. We will place the child or young person at the centre of decision making and seek to bridge the gaps that can exist between multi-agency stakeholders.
