All young people’s services across Solas benefit from high quality and flexible accommodation solutions, experienced and well trained staff and a solutions focussed approach to support. We encourage all of the people we support to have a say about the services that they live in and actively encourage young people to get involved in the many engagement activities that take place weekly at all of our schemes.
Our 21 bed scheme for young people aged 16-25, residents from this dynamic service founded Solas’s H2H scheme and residents along with staff continue to provide innovative solutions to accommodation and support for young people. The scheme is staffed 24 hours a day with each person having their own individual support worker. Referrals to the scheme come via the local authority.
This 8 bed scheme for young people aged 16-25 provides accommodation and support in a homely environment. Its cosy and friendly approach enables young people to feel at home and to work closely with their key worker on their personal goals to enable them to move on to independent living. We have recently opened ‘Sunnyside House’ next door to Hill House, this scheme provides move on accommodation in the form of two x 2 bed flats and 1 independent flat. Its close proximity to the scheme enables young people moving on to still benefit from the support that Solas provides.
