We re-write the futures of each individual placed at Taylor House by providing an intensive Independent Life Skill program. This is tailored to the needs of the young person and will help them breakdown the barriers they are currently experiencing not only in their new accommodation but in other difficult aspects of their lives.
This program intends to open up other avenues of support for those who have fallen through the safety net or refused to engage. Our ILSP provides flexible and intensive support to our young people aged 16 to 21, who have previously been homeless or in the care system and not engaged in education, training or employment. They further do not have the practical living tasks to support independent accommodation and were unable to previously access pre-existing services.
We currently have a Resident Representative at Taylor House who ensures direct lines of communication are kept open and feeds back to the young people living at the project. We believe that this is a joint aim of ensuring young peoples views are heard and they have the opportunity to influence decisions made about their future outcomes. This also helps young people to build their confidence and skills including social skills so that they can move on successfully to solo living. We provide a wide and varied menu of activities and opportunities for Taylor House's residents. This will empower them to use existing skills or develop new ones. We ensure regular feedback on the quality of our service is at the forefront and will make any recommendations as to how our young peoples experiences could be improved.

“Having moved from a breakdown in my previous accommodation to Taylor House I thoroughly enjoy the sense of the close community that everyone being under one roof has created. I love the friendly, comfortable and energetic atmosphere there is in the building and the ethos of teamwork from staff to residents. This is home from home for all young people like me"
