Statham House Rochdale helps young people to gain the necessary skills to manage and maintain their own tenancy. We offer weekly support sessions to ascertain what help young people need from us.
This can include access to mental health services, registering with a GP and dentist, and management of substance misuse.
We also support young people in finding meaningful daytime activities such as education, training and volunteering to alleviate boredom, as this can be a trigger for substance abuse and mental health issues. We can also help young people to attend any appointments.
Our team offers support around keeping a flat clean and tidy, shopping and cooking for a healthy diet while maintaining a budget.
We work closely with Sunrise, which is a part of Greater Manchester Police and deals with Sexual Exploitation concerns.
We also have a Children at risk of Sexual Exploitation (CSE) worker who offers either group support or one-to-one help for young people who are at risk of CSE.
And we work with Operation Madison which is also part of Greater Manchester police and deals specifically with young people in children’s homes or supported accommodation.
Statham House Rochdale also has a volunteer who comes in twice a week to support young people in any activities they wish to do.
She has facilitated a lot of cooking sessions, and also supported a resident to make a birthday cake for her younger brother who is in foster care.
