BUDDY SERVICE

What is

halow‘s Buddy Service?

The halow Buddy Service offers our young people 1:1 support, promoting life and social skills, independence, leisure opportunities and assists young people to access the local and wider community in ways which best suit them. halow Buddies and young people are matched according to their hobbies, interests, and other individual needs.

 

 

Outreach Services

halow Outreach Buddies work in a person-centred way with all our young people, to help them identify and achieve personal goals to lead a more fulfilling life. These goals may include travel training, money skills, managing relationships, independent living skills or any goal they deem important in their development. The Person-Centred Planning meetings we do with each young person are one of the ways that we identify individual aspirations whilst working with other people and organisations.

 

Supported Living Services

halow works with young people, families, and private landlords to develop opportunities for Supported Living. halow Support Buddies build on the outreach work by also supporting young people (with varying levels of needs) in their own home.  This can include supporting the young person to take part in everyday activities or physical tasks around the home (such as cooking, grocery shopping or cleaning) or providing personal care to some of our young people (including assisting with washing, feeding or dressing as detailed on their support assessment).

 

halow’s personal care services are registered, regulated, and inspected by the Care Quality Commission. We are never complacent here at halow and continue with our existing plans to bring investment into our growing service and further strengthen these areas.
