Saint Piran's Flag
How we make our service inclusive

This service is run in partnership with Cornwall Council providing a Targeted Youth Worker at each session, alongside a Young Persons Practitioner from Action for Children.

The venue is accessible and Action for children staff have received training in order to meet the individual needs of disabled young people.

Staff SEND experience

Staff are trained and experienced in providing activities for disabled young people - they have specialist training in: Risk assessment, ASD awareness, Makaton/ alternative communication, Epilepsy Awareness, lifting and moving people, safeguarding children and young people, behaviour management and intensive interaction.

Cornwall Council Targeted Youth Workers are all trained in youth work.

How our service supports providers / schools / colleges

This partnership supports young people outside of school times and works with schools and colleges to support young people when possible.

Support at key transition points

Staff work with parents and young people individually and through group exercises to explore different issues and topics. These are decided upon termly and in partnership with the young people who attend the group to ensure that their views and wishes are respected.

Other local or national support

Action for Children also provides youth groups on a Monday night for disabled young people in Hayle and Bodmin.

Holiday activity days are delivered during the school holidays for children and young people 5 - 17 years.

please call 01872 321486 for more information.

Resolving disagreements, mediation and making complaints

We ask that any concerns are reported to us initially to enable us to resolve the issues quickly and effectively.

Complaints can also be made through Cornwall Council or through the Action for Children "Tell Us" form. Please contact a member of staff for more information.
