Transforming the lives of young homeless people and children transitioning from care to independent living.
Currently, there are over 100,000 young people in England who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
Over 20% of those will be young people leaving the care system.
18% will go on to attempt suicide in their lives.
Our Care and Support team work to break the cycle of homelessness by providing supported accommodation and support to 16-25 year olds, and by sustaining independent placements for children transitioning from care where a package of support and accommodation is needed.
Every day you will:
·Offer direct support to young people in either a supported accommodation or individual placement setting as part of a wider care package
·Engage with practical activities, in particular those which promote and develop learning, social skills, healthy lifestyles, arts and culture, aiming to broaden horizons and raise aspirations
·Support individuals to engage in training, education, employment or voluntary work
·Promote independence, preparing young people with the resilience and practical life-skills to progress successfully into adulthood and to realise their potential
