A ‘’stepping stone’’ to independent living, with the young person living with a host family in Doncaster.
The young person has their own bedroom and shares bathroom and kitchen facilities with the family. Each young person is supported by both the Host and a DHYP Project Worker and has a tailored support plan with goals set by the young person themselves.
We run a weekly Wellbeing Hub on a Thursday afternoon from our office on Chequer Road.
We provide a safe space to meet with and chat to other young people and to participate in different activities each week such as quizzes and arts and crafts.
We run wellbeing activities and discussion groups each week based on the priorities identified by clients themselves.
We are able to provide support for a range of issues and offer one-to-one counselling with an experienced Counsellor, group wellbeing sessions and informal sessions with our Wellbeing Coaches.
DHYP puts the voice of young people at the heart of our organisation.
Our Young Persons’ Forum (YPF) provides the opportunity for young people to have their sayon the services DHYP provides and also on the wider issues affecting young people in Doncaster. The YPF is chaired by a client of the organisation and is open to all clients and non-clients aged 16-25.
Our employment skills project supports young people aged 16-25 who need support finding employment, apprenticeships, training programmes or volunteer opportunities.
We can assist with writing CVs, completing applications and preparing for interviews, all of which help young people to gain workplace skills and develop their confidence.
