About

Who We Are

We provide accommodation and support for care leavers and young unaccompanied minors aged 16-21. Our objective is to provide an environment where young people are prepared to live independently. We also support young people with education, health, finance and immigration. Our Keyworkers attend appointments with young people to offer support and advice.

Young people leaving care, estranged from parents or separated from family because of war or economic reasons, sometimes enter adult life with significant disadvantages that may impact upon their ability to meet the challenges of growing up. At Pangea, we acknowledge this and seek to develop partnerships with key local authorities to support these groups. We believe that a coordinated approach will assist young people to develop the key skills necessary for to live independently.

What we do

We offer high quality semi-independent placements and key work support for young people who are making the transition from being “in care” to becoming young adults and achieving their Independence within their local community. Through trust, transparency and a collaborative approach. We aim to provide a holistic care package, delivered by a team of staff experienced in young person management.

Individual care plans are developed in close association with young people, their parents or guardian, social workers and all appropriate professionals. This guarantees that we provide a youth centred “wrap around service” encouraging all young people to realise their full Potential. Once a young person is placed with us we assign them to a Keyworker who is able to start working with them straight away.

Self-Assessment tools

Self-Assessment tools will be used where appropriate to act as a baseline to track each individual’s development and progress.

  • Independent Living Skills as identified in the Pathway Planning process
  • Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the young person
  • Educational, Training and Employment needs and attainment targets
  • Cultural, religious, language and racial needs and how they will be met
  • Encouraging and enabling the Young Person to have a voice and facilitate their participation
  • Health promotion and healthy eating on a limited budget

Aims and Objectives

We aim to provide a tailored service to meet the needs of the young people placed with us. Often young people are placed with us further to claiming asylum in the UK. Their English is limited and they lack a basic understanding of life in the UK. We aim to support them with this by teaching them how to cook, clean, budget, travel and more. Over time, as their confidence and skills improve our purpose is to prepare them to live independently in the future.

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

Aims and Objectives

An Initial assessment will take place in order to identify the young person’s individual needs. This assessment, while primarily focusing on

the young person’s Independent living skills, will also review their particular strengths and difficulties, as identified in their Pathway Plan. The Individual Care plans will incorporate boundaries, expectations and objectives and this will be followed up by a placement plan which will help release their potential with continued support until they do so.
