Since 1992, the YES Project, or Youth Enquiry Service, has supported over 1,000 young people with accommodation and housing support needs. Our work is holistic and person-centred, and we assess every young person we work with to identify their specific needs, so that a comprehensive plan of support can be put in place.
We work intensively with service users on an individual basis and don’t just offer generic activities. Where we cannot meet an individual’s need’s we work in partnership with many other organisations. Due to our strong links and relationships with several agencies including Housing Associations, who have raised concerns that young tenants/people are lacking the skills to manage their own tenancy effectively, they refer to Centre 63 because our work is deliberately aimed at those affected by social issues.
The YES project supports young people who present homeless, families and survivors of domestic abuse between age 16 plus, those who need a recovery approach which is about enabling people who have experienced rough sleeping, mental health problems, drug or alcohol dependency, and have a history of complex needs or trauma. We offer a lifeline so they can achieve their full potential and offer a wide range of support to help to improve mental health and wellbeing.
Centre 63 has been awarded contracts in several areas including the delivery of tenancy support and resettlement work with young people focusing on employability and key skills training, to help young people to address, overcome or manage their issues. We have frequent, sustained, and regular contact with our service users and don’t signpost but liaise with our partners to get the best outcome for the individual,
The YES Project is a proactive service that offers tailored, expert mentoring and informal counselling for people facing complex social barriers (housing, mental health, criminal convictions, etc) and provides additional support to secure high-quality work placements, with good progression routes and opportunities.
