Each child and young person referred to the project is allocated a Key Worker who will undertake an assessment of their particular needs. In response to this a package of support will be developed. The support offered will be different for each child.
All young people who engage with the project are offered outings and activities, at a frequency dictated by their particular needs. These activities enable the young person to have “time out” from their caring role and an opportunity for peer support. For some of the activities the main focus so on having fun (e.g. laser quest, quad biking, cinema, ice hockey matches, concerts etc). However many of the activities offered also have a personal development element and aim to encourage the development of self esteem, confidence, resilience and coping skills. These activities include abseiling, caving, dance & drama and arts based activities such as digital photography, film making etc.
