What We Do?

Supported Accommodation

young people aged 16 – 18 can gain the confidence and skills needed to live independently. We are also there to give young people the emotional and practical support needed to help keep them on track.

Mother & Baby Care

JACS recognises that becoming a new mother can be very overwhelming and at times feel quite lonely, our facility is staffed 24 hours a day to ensure that support is available whenever its needed.

Outreach

We work closely with local Housing Associations to provide long term housing solutions to those young people who are able to evidence that they are able to maintain a tenancy successfully with minimal to no support.

  • Bullying

    JACS has an anti-bullying policy, which sets out clear expectations and practice guidance for the staff and young people. Actions to be taken for incidents involving residents will include; individual discussions with the young person and his/her keyworker, disruption meetings with the young person’s social worker to review the placement and the implementation of strategies to change the inappropriate behaviour. If these actions are unsuccessful then the Local Authority may be asked to remove the young person.

  • Complaints

    JACS aims to offer high quality and accommodation and care, which is responsive to its residents needs at all times. Nevertheless in doing so we recognise there may be times when a young person and/or their family/representative may want to express their dissatisfaction with regards to services they have received, or believe they should have received.

It covers all aspects of behaviour and history that might cause a risk to the young person or to others. Each risk assessment contains a Risk Management plan, to be followed by staff at all times. Risk assessments and management plans are updated regularly and after specific risk events
