Aims to form strong commitments and establish positive relationships with young people with a view to achieving and demonstrating positive outcomes, as evidenced in ‘Every Child Matters‘ and Tony Ward’s ‘Good Lives Model‘
Positive outcomes are achieved by a gradual development of practical, cognitive and transferable life skills thus empowering the young person/vulnerable adult to take control and to make informed choices.
Positive role modelling through experienced and qualified crew members, whose skills match the person’s needs, paves the way to achieving full potential within society.
‘ We recognise that a 28-day placement can be limiting in terms of achieving long term goals but we believe that our service delivers an all-inclusive strengths-based model resulting in high impact outcomes from the minute the young person steps on aboard and becomes a crew member. More importantly, they become a member of the team.
