Main Services Provided

CFSP is Health and Social Care working alongside Training and Employment, where we look at the barriers to education, training and employment, in the home if necessary, or wherever participants are most comfortable. We help to address the issues the young person is coping with, improve motivation, confidence and get ready to enter training or employment, the end goal sustainability through empowerment.
We have had fantastic outcomes where some of the young people had basically been “written off” by others, but we are a team that doesn’t give up easy!

Eligibility:
Each family participating on the programme must have a young person aged 16 to 24 years not in education or training or working less than 16 hours per week. The family may have concerns to be addressed (employment, educational, training, health, social and economic) and is volunteering to develop their capacity to improve their lives. CFSP is available through Network Personnel in:
Causeway Coast and Glens / Mid Ulster / Mid and East Antrim / Antrim and Newtownabbey
In addition to our core support service we have excellent Facilitators in CFSP who work with participants on 1:1 or small groups, whatever most appropriate, the participant gains OCN accredited qualifications, and it's all done easily and amalgamated into the workshop through the sessions, so there is no pressure on anyone for homework, and also get specialist support as needed.
CFSP is fully funded, including the training and certification, through NI European Social Fund, Investment for Growth and Jobs Programme.

The 16-24 year old and their family have access to the family support, employability and training teams, a wraparound service to help get into training or employment, or learn the skills for the future if the time is just not right to start working life.

We offer free training with OCN Accreditation on numerous qualifications e.g.
• Sport Coaching
• Skills for employment / Training and Personal Development
• Vocational Skills
