This programme will incorporate the active participation of the START – Youth Service, youth case workers, HWC Youth Transitions workers and HWC Social Service Staff. These staff will refer, coach and mentor each participant through this programme. We also host access to specialist mental health services through our partners to navigate any potential mental health issues that are disclosed during the course of these activities. This pilot programme is designed to mentor and staircase / scaffold young people into employment, whilst being incentivised to complete a community work programme.
