young people with additional support

Young people who receive additional support

If a young person needs additional support on NCS, we will work in consultation with the young person, their families and relevant professionals to create a tailored support plan, which can include 1-to-1 support.

We are also able to provide updates throughout the programme if needed to Youth Offending Teams or Social Services.

Young people can receive support from a wide range of agencies, including;

  • Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators (SENCOs) or Teaching Assistants (TAs) at school
  • Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)
  • Social workers and key workers

As part of the individual assessment of every young person’s support needs, we are able to contact any relevant professionals to build a full picture of a young person and their needs. For more information about the application process, please see here.

I had a brilliant conversation with JB at the end of NCS. I asked him what his dreams are and he said, ‘I feel like I can do things now.’ Seeing him come out of his quiet, uninterested shell to becoming an integral part of the team who stood up and spoke about his past…is an awesome transformation. He formed great friendships and was respected by all. He has so much potential.

I felt very nervous because I wasn’t with anyone I knew from before. I thought I was going to be bored and homesick. But the first day was really fun, because we played games to get to know each other’s names and break the ice basically.
