Plan B

Plan B is a therapeutic-based Supported Lodging young people 4 copyScheme, which supports the young person to develop healthy relationships and a chance to fulfil their potential.  It has grown from the concept of a young person becoming an integrated part of a host’s home, supported by a ‘wrap-around’ therapeutic-based intervention package, designed specifically for that young person that is informed by neuroscience research and evidence based practice. There is an emphasis on the importance of safety, stability, authentic emotional warmth and attachments for young people. 

What Makes Plan B Different

  • Co-Designed by the Young Person, Co-Delivered by a personalised and specialised, therapeutic wrap around team – no “off the shelf” packages

  • Intensive support for young person which is adaptable and responsive and reduces over time

  • Support from a therapeutic enabler to look at lifelong change, life story work, targeted therapeutic interventions

  • Group and Multi Agency Supervision

  • Regular Action Learning Sets as a formal reflective practice tool

  • Intensive training programme developed and co delivered with Dr Rob Long (D.Ed.Psych.)
