A DAY DROP-IN CENTRE AND OVERNIGHT STAY FOR CARE LEAVERS
The aim of Go-Forward is to provide a short stay crisis home for 18-24 year olds who find themselves at a low point. Go-Forward will provide a warm supported, caring environment that can help young people through their difficulties when they feel most isolated.
Go-Forward will also have a drop in centre for 18-24’s where they can come and spend time knowing there is someone who they can talk to generally as well as in challenging situations. Go-Forward also gives young people the opportunity to build on their skills through varied activities and mentoring sessions provided.
