Supporting at-risk NEET care leavers (aged 16-24 years) through holistic intervention 16 Mar 2016

Statistics show that young people leaving care are significantly more likely to develop mental health issues, become homeless and enter prison. 2013/14 figures for England also show that 23% of all care leavers come from London. The Big House works with young people in the care system from across London, using drama combined with mentoring and therapeutic support to help them develop personally and integrate successfully into society. Comic Relief would fund a worker to provide pastoral support to young people involved in weekly workshops and the twice-yearly Open House Project. Care leavers will gain confidence and be supported to achieve their goals relating to work or training/education.
