Our supported housing houses young adults from age 17 years to 25 years who need a certain level of support to help them make the transition to independent living. We have well organised transitioning protocols and programmes that have measurable benefits for the young adults we support.
Our Living Mission
To provide a safe and nurturing environment for vulnerable young adults, that unleashes their hidden potential through mentorship and coaching.
Our Living Vision
Vybrant Independent Living bridges the gap between social care, health and housing for emerging adults. With our systematic approach, we provide emerging adults with a safe environment that offers security and social support of a traditional family.
Our Living Values
Aspiration | Responsibility | Respect | Care
Our Supported Living facilicities are tailored to enhance independence in young adults. We engage and support them meeting their needs using person-centred principles. Flexible and appropriate arrangements are made to address a person’s changing needs; quality of life, and participation and social inclusion. We offer support for (individual) people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities that facilitates living full and meaningful lives.
Our Stop Over Bed hosts young people for a maximum of three nights giving the referring agency the opportunity to find suitable long-term accommodation, or can provide time and space to enable families to resolve their difficulties if that is the reason the young person left home. This service offers young people a place of safety as we believe that no young person should sleep in an unsafe place.
We help young adults with the skills, training and confidence they need to ensure they are able to manage their finances responsibly. We believe that all Young People should grow up feeling confident that they have not just the skills and knowledge, but also the attitudes and behaviours they need to make the most of their money throughout their lives.
Every young adult should have the opportunity to access full-time education, college or training. We liase with education or training providers to make provision for young adults to return into education. By assisting the young adult to return to school, they have another opportunity to develop on their social skills and making new friends.
Knowing how to procure food or cook food is one of the primary life skills for young adults. Personal grooming is important to stay healthy and have a good social or romantic life, with cleanliness being one of the tenets of hygiene. Our support will provide guidance of meeting all aspects of good personal-hygiene and encouraging a good envronment that one can thrive in.
We offer the opportunity for young people who are disengaged with mainstream education to develop new skills in an alternative setting. Through counselling and coaching, young adults are guided to reach their ultimate goals. Our life coach will help individuals in different areas of their life. But because each human being is different, so will their goals.
We take positive action supporting the young adults to overcome their limiting factors of inclusion and enable individuals and communities to participate fully in society. We empower them, and allow them to express their opinions without fear of retribution. Additionally, we encourage the young adults to participate in social or cultural events.
Today, young adults are finding it increasingly difficult to enter the workforce, let alone thrive within it. Our support will provide strategic plans through workshops to support with getting the jobs and opportunities the young adults want. We will liaise with local partners e.g. employers, Jobcentre Plus, community sector organisations and youth offending teams.
