The aim was to provide a more efficient and effective service for homeless young people in the borough than had previously existed.
Each organisation retains its own identity while working in partnership - sharing a collective vision of preventing homelessness and encouraging independence among young people.
The aim of the Consortium is to:
- Provide better services to the young people whose needs it serves,
- Build a stronger and more effective support network within South Tyneside,
- Develop the capacity and experience of each of its partners,
- Give commissioners user-led, value-for-money services that embrace diversity and improvement and meet priorities, and
- Work in partnership with agencies, service users, stakeholders and commissioners to develop services, increase choice and identify and address unmet needs.
