ONSITE YOUTH WORK
At Really NEET part of our great success with these young people is the holistic approach to solving their disengagement from education. We know from deep experience that there is usually a variety of factors involved in a young person not being in education. To really help these young people in regaining their education we have to help them to breakdown these barriers so that they can move forwards with their lives.
Many of our young people live in children’s homes, hostels and women refuges without the support to get up and out of bed in the morning. Others have social, emotional and mental health barriers that prevent them leaving the house independently. To combat this, we provide a home pick-up/drop-off service which is crucial to the learner’s engagement and attendance. In time we can provide travel training to enable them to become more independent preparing them for future education, training and employment.
