Short Term Case Work (up to 12 weeks) is offered by the Youth Engagement Team for at risk or vulnerable young people with medium to high needs who would like assistance in reaching their self-determined goals. Goals may relate to education, employment, housing, finances, mental health, and any other concerns that require additional support.
Referrals are welcome from all avenues, provided that the young person has consented to their information being shared and they are willing to work collaboratively with a youth worker.
Once an appropriate referral has been accepted, the young person will be assigned a youth worker who will continue to be their point of contact for the duration of their case work time. The young person’s worker will assist them in creating an action plan that outlines the young person’s goals as well as practical ways of working together to accomplish them.
BCS utilises a strengths-based case work model and works with young people in a person-centred, family and community focused manner.
