YOUNG PEOPLE, EDUCATION, EMPLOYMENT & HOUSING
Our programmes focus on working with young people that have complex needs and/or are NEET, to identify the things that are more important to them and helping them to achieve fulfilling lives.
young people have been supported
participants have began education/training
young people have entered employment
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.
