Step Forward is a 1:1 programme. It is a bespoke intervention project which addresses young people's individual needs.
The project is accessed by referral using the Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council Early Help System.
The programme is designed to establish a positive relationship with the young person, enabling them to reflect on their current situation and work towards addressing any personal identified issues or needs. Step Forward places an emphasis on youth work principles to bring about positive change in young people's behaviours and situations through a structured series of person-centred experiences.
The project provides opportunities for self reflection across the following areas:
- Physical, mental and emotional wellbeing
- Educational needs
- Confidence and self-esteem
- Decision making and problem solving
