Post 16 Transition Service
Our Post 16 transition service offers accommodation, support, counselling and education to young people aged 16-25. We offer medium to long term placements and emergency placements.
Young people may display the following behaviours:
- Attachment issues
- Emotional and behavioural problems
- Physical disabilities
Fair Ways provides a warm, accepting and safe environment, providing appropriate levels of staffing. We support young people to gain the practical and emotional skills to live independently and engage positively in the community.
Our aim is to provide stability, consistency and acceptance with the emphasis on the young adults being responsible for themselves. Our staff seek to support, advise and report, not to tell or instruct.
All young people receive a comprehensive needs assessment on entry to the service. This needs assessment will inform which stage of the programme they are best suited to join and the individual support package offered.
Fair Ways have a number of Post 16 homes for young people. They consist of small family homes and can accommodate two to four residents at a time. Each young person has their own private room and share communal areas. The accommodation is usually near bus routes, train stations, colleges and local job opportunities.
