Floating support


The right amount of support

We provide a level of temporary support to a range of young people to support them as they overcome particular challenges. This support often proves to be the difference between young people taking up services on a revolving door basis or advancing towards independence.

Some of our specialist floating support includes:

Restoring Families Project

CAYSH has been operating a Floating Support service for families including young people at risk of homelessness since September 2008.The objective is to enable the young person to develop life skills and improve communication within the family that head off homelessness before it begins. More information is found in the Family and Community Services section.

Youth Offending Service (YOS)
Since 2002, CAYSH has provided a floating support service for young offenders facing homelessness. Working closely with the local Youth Offenders' Service (YOS), CAYSH’s support worker is based at both CAYSH and YOS offices.This ensures a continuity of support, even when a young person’s accommodation can change from day to day.

Young Adults Support Services (YASS)
CAYSH recognises that some young people will require support even when they have moved into independent accommodation. We provide this intensive support for challenging and vulnerable young people.
