Our Semi-Independent Living service provides a high standard of accommodation and supportive environment for residents aged 16 to 18 years. We aim to ensure young people are able to develop and maintain respect, self-reliance and self-care skills and enable them to make informed, age-appropriate decisions, concerning their present and future so they can achieve a successful transition into independence and adulthood.
We work in partnership with Social Workers, families, health and education workers and relevant professionals, to assist the young people placed in our care to reach their full potential. Some young people, who have been subjected to discrimination and negative stereotyping from their peers and by the local community, are often compounded with low self-esteem
Shared occupancy, small group homes staffed 24/7 by one worker per shift, with a maximum of 3 young people living in the Group House. Each young person has their own bedroom and access to shared kitchen and bathroom facilities.
