Young People


“Staff was there night and day to help get [my boyfriend] ready for living independent. When they moved my boyfriend into an offsite flat they might not have been there every day, but the phone calls to check in where all that mattered.”

Feedback from a girlfriend of a former YOU Supported Living service.

New Forest and Dorset Young People

Our vision is for every young person to become a positive force for change in their own life, and the lives of others, whatever their background or circumstance. In this way they will make a successful transition to adulthood with the capabilities they need to become happy, healthy, valued members of the community, fully equipped to access employment and achieve their aspirations.

We give young people the tools they need for life, work and a better future through having a voice so they can influence the world around them. We create innovative and inspiring programmes in partnership with young people and deliver them to community-cased and targeted youth organisations. Through key-working, we help young people to:

  • Work in staying safe
  • Manage their accommodation
  • Find work
  • Develop life skills
  • Avoid isolation
  • Prepare for more independent living
  • Get into college
  • Find a job
  • Join a sports or social club
