Next Step will provide suitable accommodation for young people to live in, that will allow both Next Step and Social services to assess their current independent living skills and risks and to identify a plan to help the young person learn the required skills.
Next Step will work towards completing the Independent living portfolio provided by Social Services and will help the young person to achieve the individual units.
This package will be for 12 weeks at any given time and can be terminated at any point with two weeks notice from either party, or a Young Person can be moved by NSCM if behaviour is at an unmanageable level in the local community or the property.
This package will include
Week 1 + 2 =15 hours support
3+4= 8 hours support
5+6=6 hours support

NSCM has created this package to prevent young people spending large amounts of time in B&B where they are unable to use the Independent skills they have and will be able to increase cooking and budgeting skills.
This package costs £600 a week.
