Youth Club (YC)
- Category: Our Programmes
The youth Club programme helps young people to have access to a wide range of services they need (employment, further education, skills training, family matters, youth matters etc).
The club helps to ensure that the most disadvantaged young refugees have access to opportunities that will improve their life chances, enhancing their sense of health and well-being and help them integrate into and feel part of the wider community. This programme helps our young people divert from a life of crime as a means of resolving issues associated with poverty. It helps support outing activities for life limited young people, giving them and their families including foster families wonderful memories, and helping them to socially develop.
It provides a floating support service for young refugee Care Leavers, to enable them to develop or maintain their skills to live independently in society.
To be part of the club, potential service user must -
- Be 18+ years of age,
- Refugees with UK status and recourse to public funds,
- Reasonably demonstrate that they do not pose an unsupportable risk to themselves or other service users
We accept referrals from individuals, support workers, social workers, GPs, solicitors and welfare organisations. We encourage any prospective service users to visit us first and meet the staff for further information on the availability of the service, and the service delivery details.
Where required and as part of the support offered, Care Link West Midlands can identify and arrange for sign post to more appropriate support services if those services are not available within Care Link West Midlands support package.
