At Rainbow, we have a dedicated Youth Participation Worker to engage with and provide support for our young people. This can be on an individual or a group basis with the overall goal of helping children/young persons realise their full potential. This is done through a variety of activities, events and trips.These could include football, bowling the cinema or eating out. Other activities may include projects revolving around art or music.Fostering teenagers. There are no particular people who make successful foster carers for teenagers. Information about teenagers responsibilities, fostering.
In group meetings different topics can be discussed giving children the chance to ‘open up’ and perhaps discover that in some of the problems and issues they face, they are not alone. The underlying aim is to work collaboratively and constructively with young people to support their futures.
Our Youth Participation Worker is an advocate for the children and young persons in their charge: special attention is focused around the area of educational support so he/she/they can identify and achieve personal goals and maintain a positive outlook along the pathway to adulthood.
