Visionary Individual Pathways

What we do?

Within our Short Stay provision, we support children and young people who are struggling with the pressures of both school and/or life in general. We offer an individual package that can include Education, Sport and Emotional Coaching Support.

Our aim is to re-integrate young people back into their mainstream school or support transition to a more specialist long term provision eg Special School or College.

Our services can also be accessed by individuals within the community and this is delivered by our team of Emotional Coaches.

Who can use your service?

We work with children and young people with social, emotional and mental health difficulties including associated behaviours; children and young people with anxiety issues that may prevent them accessing full time education.
