Parent and Toddler Group
If you are now a parent, we have a Parent & Toddler group to support you through this new chapter of your life in a fun and social environment.
We have a cuppa and a chat about all the up's and down's of being a parent, have some activities for the kids and generally support each other.
Aftercare Adult Accommodation Pilot
We have built up a network of safe and secure lodgings for care leavers who are not ready to take on all the responsibilities of independent living.
This programme can be accessed through your aftercare worker.

Annually we host 2 training placement students for care leavers.
This programme is full-time and equips you with the necessary skills and accredited training to reach your career goals.
The Social, Emotional and Educational programme provides intensive support to care leavers who are not in education or training at the moment.
This programme provides you with all the skills to engage with your next step in training and employment.
