Thank you for supporting a young person to access Future Youth Zone and welcome to our inclusive environment, supporting young people to be independent.
As we are unable to offer 1:1 support/personal care for young people, we welcome appropriate adults to provide assistance to young people requiring additional support to access Futurebility and our universal sessions. A Personal Assistant may be supplied by a health/social care agency, employed by the family or be a family member above the age of 18.
Future Youth Zone offers a varied activity programme which is adapted, modified or specific for young people with additional needs. Our aim is to enable all young people to maximise their potential and to support them to be as independent as they can be. To ensure we maintain a youth focussed environment and enable staff to concentrate on the delivery of quality activities we ask that any personal assistants who do not need to stay with their young person wait in reception.
Our inclusion team will provide a one-to-one induction for new members and their parents/carers/personal assistant where we will discuss any additional support needs and discuss the young person’s level of independence during our sessions. Support may be reduced or increased at any time. During the induction you will be given a copy of our Safeguarding Policy and you will be given a health and safety tour of the building.
We ask our members, staff, volunteers, and visitors to:
RESPECT YOUR BUILDING
RESPECT YOUR STAFF
RESPECT EACH OTHER
Code of Conduct
Our Code of Conduct sets the standard of conduct expected of Personal Assistants. The standards have been developed using the ‘Skills for Health’ framework which applies to all social care support staff. It outlines the behaviour and attitudes that we should expect to experience from Personal Assistants signed up to the code. It helps you to provide safe, guaranteed care and support.
If the Future Youth Zone team identify any concerns with a Personal Assistant, in relation to the Code of Conduct, or the Policy, including the Future Youth Zone rules, we will raise these with the Personal Assistant, or their employer to ensure best practice
