Discovering Your Potential (DYP)

Each young person is allocated a key worker who will provide ongoing support and signpost for specialist intervention as required.

Explore & B’Leave (E&B)

E&B was developed in response to the covid-19 pandemic and focussing on supporting young people aged 15-18 to make the transition from school to post-school activity, working on areas like confidence, and vocational activity like CV building.
