SUPPORTING YOUNG PEOPLE

Our Belmont Youth Programme is an intensive residential programme for at-risk and vulnerable young people aged 13 – 18 years who are currently under the care of the Department of Communities - Child Protection and Family Support. The Programme is designed to provide a safe living and learning environment for young people.

WHAT DO WE DO?

These young people often have histories of major traumatic events such as sexual and emotional abuse, family breakdown and homelessness. Professionally trained staff in the areas of social work, youth work, psychology and mental health work therapeutically together to help the young people to improve their outcomes.

How DO we help?

Our team will assist the young person with goal setting, identifying their issues and the team will support, motivate, role-model and guide the young person to address any issues that impacts on their functioning as an individual. Individualised care plans for all young people are developed and reviewed on a regular basis which aims to optimise the young person’s growth in all development areas.

Our team is committed and will go to great lengths to find innovative solutions to assist the young people in achieving their goals. Staff assist young people in identifying their strengths and will encourage them to build on them whether it is music, art, athletic ability, technical ability or another area of interest.

Young people accepted into the Programme are required to have a day programme e.g. education, training and/or employment. The Belmont Youth Programme Team is particularly effective in finding alternative education and training options.

As a participant in the Programme, residents are encouraged to take responsibility for their living environment and are taught budgeting, cooking, lifestyle and independent living skills. Young people are encouraged to commit to, recreational and spiritual activities to extend their positive social networks. If young people are unable to return home, they will receive assistance in developing their independent living skills to move to more stable, long-term accommodation..

Most of the young people at the Belmont Youth Programme have extremely limited contact and/or broken relationships with their families. The Programme has a major focus on re-establishing and maintaining links, where appropriate, between the young person and his/her family or significant others.

The Belmont Youth Programme can only accept referrals from the Department for Child Protection and Family Support Placement Officer.
