Semi-Independent Housing Provider
We believe that every young person has the fundamental right to be supported into a successful transition from childhood to adulthood, irrespective of their background or circumstances. We deliver tailored support packages for young people aged 16+ who have identified support needs and have either been living in residential settings or foster families and are ready to transition to independent living. Our support is focused and dynamic to respond effectively to young people’s ever-changing needs.
GetOn Youths aims to deliver and maintain an outstanding service that will improve and sustain the overall quality of life and enhance and promote the pathway towards independence for young people.
GetOn Youths Ltd are building a great reputation for providing specialised care for young people with challenging behaviour and/or emotional needs in semi-independent and 24-hour supervised housing settings.
We offer an inviting, safe and secure space for young people; and are able to meet individual needs through a dedicated staff team with the necessary expertise and compassion to fully support young people at such a pivotal and delicate time in their lives. Our staff team are trained in therapeutic parenting, acknowledging that most of the young people we support will need more than just ‘good enough’ traditional parenting due to their early life experiences. ‘Every relationship has the power to confirm or to challenge all that has gone on before’ (Bruce Perry).
We encourage and empower young people to meaningfully contribute towards their individual plans as we believe that by them taking ownership of their plans this will enhance engagement. Building and sustaining trusting relationships is key as well as role modelling, peer mentorship, 1:1 key working sessions all of which are tailored to individual needs to give young people a voice in all that concerns them. ‘It only takes one key relationship / person to make a difference’ (Bruce Perry).
We also offer therapeutic 1:1 sessions for young people within an environment that is conducive to their individual needs.

Empower them with essential skills for adulthood.
