Committed to providing full support for young people

Our Mission

Connections 2 Independence is committed in providing full support to young people.  Our programmes of support will aid and encourage young people who are struggling with their day to day life. This could be within school, in the community or at home. In addition our programmes will promote a healthy transition towards independent living – at this critical point of the young person’s life.  

Care

Connections 2 Independence offer a Personal Assistant service.
​A Personal Assistant is identified as an individual  who can offer support to individuals with additional support needs. Our team can offer support within each young persons home and the community. We also provide a short breaks service.

As a team we want to ensure we can provide a personalised and appropriate support packages from your door to ours. We understand work commitments can be difficult, meeting and appointments can appear or change, and illness arise. 

​Do you need a break? Do you need to take a step back and focus one step at a time? We are the service for you! 

We build safe, secure, fun and trusted relationships with all our families and individuals, to ensure we make a positive impact on their lives. 

We are proud to be the leading provider of care within our community. It is our main priority as a company to make a difference and give those in our care opportunities like no other. 

Housing

Connections 2 Independence is required because our current social care system demands support packages for young persons aged 16 – 18. Supported living schemes are in short supply within our communities. Many young people don’t have the required support for sustainable housing and family unit breakdowns are increasingly common. 
 
We provide a comprehensive package of support that is tailored to each young people ages 16 – 18. Most of these will be from the wider care system, many of which have prospects of complete independence but require a supported package in order to achieve this.
 
Our packages range in length, but all are tailored to the young person’s needs. We aim for all young people to achieve their goal of independent living. We will deal with reintervention into the community as well as teach and develop essential life skills. Our packages also focus on educational needs, work placements and employment in preparation for the transition towards adulthood. 

Mentoring

At Connections 2 Independence we offer a mentoring service for young people who need a break or support around school, education or general day to day living activities. We believe each young person should be given the opportunity to succeed and progress in life to reach their ambitions and goals. We work closely with local schools, foster care agencies and local authorities. To provide a comprehensive support package to identify each individuals needs by providing a program tailored to them.

We aim to support young people around their emotional wellbeing while bettering their resilience and skills set in developing coping mechanisms to control their behaviours and emotions. We support both male and females across Gloucestershire with high – low support needs. 

Connections 2 Independence can provide support from your front door, we include one to one work as well as group and family mentoring services. We work around re engagement, learning programs and transitioning back into mainstream schools.
