How to Access this Service
Referrals can be made online via their website. Each of their services is listed on the website and a referral form is on each page. Alternatively, you can speak to a member of the team about the best service or drop them an email. They accept referrals directly or from other professionals.
– Health and Wellbeing
BYHP offers free Counselling and Family Mediation sessions. They run a CAMHS project working with children and young people who, it is deemed, would benefit from some light-touch Mental Health intervention. The Mental Wealth Academy service for 18 to 25-year-olds, offering one to one focused interventions, using evidence-based therapies, emotional literacy and self-management tools.
– Training and Employability
Back on Track, aims to transform the lives of young people aged 15-17 who are Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET) or at risk of becoming NEET.
Unlocking Potential for Oxfordshire helps young people aged 17-19 who are NEET to discover their potential. Through 1-2-1 mentoring and coaching young people will quickly develop self-confidence, self-esteem, work readiness and employability.
– Housing and Homelessness Advice
Although BYHP is not able to offer accommodation, they can help by signposting young people to the right organisation to get them on the housing pathway. They can help them fill out forms and make use of the phones. Before emergency accommodation is given, young people have to be verified as street sleeping so they can provide them with a tent, sleeping bag and access to food whilst they are waiting for this to happen.
Who is it for?
BYHP can support all young people (13 to 25), and their families, within North Oxfordshire and surrounding areas, using a blended approach of Face to Face and virtual contact.
