EMPOWERING YOUNG PEOPLE

SUPPORTING YOUNG PEOPLE IN TRANSITION TO INDEPENDENCE

Just as we support our children and grandchildren to have a headstart in life, so all young people deserve this leg up.

In some parts of Norfolk and elsewhere, if you don't have a great start in life, you're less likely to be able to turn it around.

At Your Own Place we don't think it's the young person's fault.

Through this website you can get involved and provide a meaningful 'leg up'.

- You might just offer words of encouragement and support through a safe messaging service

- You might choose to help a young person to take pride in their first home by buying them items from their Argos wish list

- You can signpost them to great opportunities and jobs you may have seen

- Or you can get really hands on by signing up to be a Volunteer Tenancy Mentor

WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT

PARTNERS CAN INTERACT WITH YOUNG PEOPLE DIRECTLY TO GIVE
SOME EXTRA WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT & SUPPORT
"You're doing really well - just keep going."
"I remember when I got my first place and I didn't have curtains for a month - well done."
"It sounds like you'll have a job any day now."
