Main Services Provided

The 16+ service is available to Looked After Children between the age of 16-18years and those young people who are post 18 years and meet the thresholds under the aftercare legislation. The team provides opportunities to enhance outcomes for the young people in respect of their education, health development and independent living skills. The team also provides a variety of support services based on the assessed needs of the young person as well as signposting and supporting them in accessing community based services. We also consult with young people and care leavers and incorporate their views and experiences into the planning and development of the service.
"Our aim is to ensure young people in the care system are given every opportunity and support to achieve their full potential in life as they progress through to adulthood."

Referral

There is a single point of entry with referrals from the Family Intervention Teams and Looked After Children Teams being sent to the Assistant Principal Social Worker based in TSL House.

Young people post 18 years who meet the criteria under the aftercare legislation can self refer for support services.
