Flying the Nest
When it’s time for the young person to leave us, we’ll have equipped them with all the skills and knowledge necessary in order for them to make a positive and beneficial transition to adult life
It is our aim for them to have fully enjoyed being part of our family and have gained the tools to assist them venture out into the world and to make their mark, succeeding in anything they put their minds to.
We spend a lot of time working with them throughout the duration of their stay supporting them to acquire practical, social and emotional skills. We appreciate how scary it might be for them and they may feel lonely or anxious, but it is our job to reassure them this is not the case. Though they may not always be living with us, we do not like to cut the ties completely, and encourage them to stay in touch and we will always offer them advice and guidance if needed.
We will have played a massive part in their lives and they will have left an ever-lasting imprint of themselves on our home. Prior to their departure, we spend a great deal of time with them focussing on what they wish to do next and how we can best help them get there.
During their stay we hold informative and engaging sessions with people who could be identified as mentors to the young people and they will discuss their life experiences or their careers.
This is something the young person may wish to pursue when they leave so we can reach out on behalf of the young person. We are able to signpost to external agencies who they may wish to speak to regarding employment or training.
