From March 31st 2021, the Your Way partnership will no longer be delivering the following three services:
- Community Development (youth work and participation)
- Emotional Resilience (counselling and mentoring)
- Information Advice and Guidance
Support Services for young people in Cornwall are changing, with an exciting new partnership between Cornwall Council and Action for Children. Going live on 1st April 2021, this new service will provide county-wide needs led support for young people aged 11 to 19 and up to 25 with SEND.
Cornwall Council have been working closely with the Your Way partnership and Action for Children to ensure a smooth transition into this new service. As the new lead partner, Action for Children will provide direct delivery and the effective co-ordination and brokerage of all Support Services. Action for Children have over 30 years’ experience of providing Services in Cornwall.
Action for Children will partner with the Dreadnought Centre who will provide targeted and specialist emotional / mental health support to young people across Cornwall. Young people with mental health needs will also be able to benefit from SilverCloud’s specialist e-therapy platform.
Kooth’s on-line counselling support and live chat service is also continuing. Kooth’s face to face counselling will be continuing in the short term whilst the new service is starting up.
Action for Children will publish and communicate the new referral pathway and agreed thresholds including contact details for the new service during week beginning March 22nd 2021 and we will keep you updated through this website as soon as more information is available.
If you wish to find out more about Action for Children, details can be found here.
The HeadStart Community and Skills Your Way project will continue to offer support to young people, parents and community groups throughout Cornwall via the Your Way partnership and information about these projects will continue to be accessible through this website.
We, The Learning Partnership for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly wish to take this opportunity to thank our partners Cornwall Rural Community Charity, Kooth and Young People Cornwall for their persistent hard work and ongoing commitment in supporting young people across Cornwall throughout the duration of the contracts.
