The good the bad

Good….

Speedy response

Sticking with it

Needs defined level of contact

Listening

Availability & OOH support

Involving the YP in decisions concerning them

A ‘whole person’ approach

Dealing with underlying issues

Support remaining in place for the right duration

Not so good….

Frequent changes of worker

Not being listened to

Not having somewhere safe to stay

Not being involved in decisions in matters affecting the YP

Lots of different workers for different ‘problems’

Support being withdrawn too early

Meetings being cancelled

“”They listened when no-one else would. It has really helped me understand that mum’s drinking isn’t my fault”

young person aged 12

“they were there when other people were not, after 5 and at the weekends. If I had to leave a message I always knew my worker would get back to me

young person, aged 15

“the (LINK) Project has helped me to not go down the same road as some of my friends who are now in loads of bother, using drugs and stuff”
