Space 2 Elevate aims to be the go to service where young people can address and overcome their trauma and other support requirements in a safe way. Our 1-2-1 and group support and workshops will enable young people to build positive and healthy relationships with support staff, family (where applicable), their peers and their tutors. We aim to 'flip the script' (change the narrative) and provide the opportunity for our young people to have positive experiences that they may have missed out on as a result of being in care. We endeavour to provide a high quality, young person centred service that enables our young people to achieve the same outcomes as their counterparts who have not been part of the care system. We will support our young people to overcome; childhood trauma, mental health issues, risk of exploitation (sex, county lines etc), substance abuse and reoffending whilst increasing their engagement with education, self employment and employment.

What we'll deliver:

  • High quality living spaces for young people
  • Workspace for sessions and workshops
  • Communal PC
  • Redecoration of communal living area
  • Days out and activities for care leavers

Why it's a great idea:

Our project will provide a safe environment where they will receive support and education that will help them overcome their barriers and go on to live independent and successful lives. It will also improve their self confidence and help them to build positive relationships with support staff, peers, family (where applicable) and the community in which they live.
