YOUNG PEOPLE, EDUCATION, EMPLOYMENT & HOUSING

KEY BENEFITS OF THIS APPROACH

​The switch to outcomes-based contracting has enabled a much more collaborative, flexible approach to problem-solving. This has facilitated a number of significant delivery innovations, including:

  • An 'asset-based' approach, focusing on a young person's strengths and values rather than their needs

  • Ongoing data management, to help coaches understand how young people are responding to and progressing with the support.

  • Young people participation boards that give young people engaged on the programme an opportunity to shape and design the support they need to succeed

IN FOCUS: REBOOT WEST

Reboot West believes that life outcomes for care leavers can significantly improve by supporting them in the transition period. Reboot West, which is delivered by 1625 Independent People, delivers a four-year support programme for care leavers 16+ who are NEET (not in education, employment or training) or are risk of becoming NEET.

 

The programme employs coaches who work with care leavers for up to four years, using approaches informed by the Acceptance & Commitment Therapy model. This involves helping young people to identify the things that are most important to them, enabling them to progress into work or training and live more fulfilling lives.
