Who can access Inside Out?

Looked after children between 14.5 and 18 years old who have multiple vulnerabilities and have had multiple placement moves in the last twelve months. 

What support does the service provide?

Inside Out provides intensive coaching support for young people. This can be for up to 25 hours per week and for a duration of up to 18 months. 

Coaches can work to help support young people with identified outcomes and enable them to make informed choices and settle in placement. Coaches will also work towards facilitating a step down in placement where this is appropriate.

'My coach has helped me a lot since everything has happened, been there for me and never given up.'

How do I access the service?

The service is only accessible through your social work team. Speak to your identified referring social worker through your brokerage or ART team.

Please note: there is currently no waiting time, but as this is a pilot, there are limited places.
