care n. - a thing to be done
Providing high quality accommodation, outreach and support services for young people living across Sussex, London and Kent, asphaleia care is the longest running venture at asphaleia.
The team supports professionals working with young people aged 16-24, focussing on their wellbeing, welfare and skills development to aid successful transition into adulthood and independent living. We also offer Independent Visitor Services and Specialist Services, including CSE (child sexual exploitation) and particular expertise with UASC (unaccompanied asylum seeking children).
We are committed to making a positive difference to young people who are facing a period of change, uncertainty or in need of support from a significant adult.
foster v. - to nurture growth
Fostering enables us to make a positive difference to any child's life promoting their future growth and development through nurturing foster placements. We believe that the presence of a supportive, encouraging and approving foster family can greatly enhance a child's self-esteem and help them to grow into confident, happy and well adjusted adults.
Our Worthing-based agency has a dedicated team of foster carers who maintain high levels of care for children and young people. We have specialist experience in UASC and parent and child placements.
If you are interested in becoming a carer, we offer a competitive package of benefits, training and support networks to ensure our foster carers are looked after and never face challenging days on their own. Please contact us at our centre in Worthing town to find out more.
train n. - to direct the growth of
asphaleia training offers an alternative learning environment for further education, open 52 weeks of the year, which may be more suited to the needs of young people age 16+ who find mainstream education frightening or a struggle. Young people can enrol anytime and enjoy personalised engagement and learning programmes.
We aim to enhance the delivery of education establishments by providing additional support for the young people who need it, to enable them to make a positive transition into further learning or work. As well as programmes for 16+, we offer specialist NEET engagement and prevention projects for 14-24 years.
We support young people to acquire new skills, develop personally and gain confidence to enable them to remain in learning and make a positive transition into further learning or work.
We work in partnership with schools, colleges, training providers and other professionals to create bespoke wrap around learning and support. We engage with local employers to inform students learning and provide mutual opportunities and experiences for young people.
