Transitions

Peabody’s Transitions programme supports young people in Westminster who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, to build positive independent futures and develop essential employment and life-skills.

This innovative project supports both individuals and groups through:

  • Intensive one to one sessions with a Caseworker
  • Flexible, tailored packages of support for each young person based on a detailed assessment of needs, co-ordinating referrals to all specialist services
  • Pre-employability programmes to prepare young people for job applications and choosing a career
  • Access to independent living skills workshops in order to gain key skills in financial management, budgeting, paying bills and managing a tenancy independently
  • Personal budgets
  • Access to Peabody tenancies

 

From July 2016 to March 2017 Transitions provided 1-2-1 support to 29 participants, of which 15 young people were supported into employment, training and other positive opportunities, and 4 young people were provided with a Peabody tenancy and are now living independently as Peabody tenants.
