This service is offered to young people and adults aged between 16-25 years and provide opportunities for people to engage in social and community activities.
The Buddy Scheme is more than just a family support service. Our aim is to promote wider opportunities for young people and adults to fully integrate them into society.
Our Buddy team are staff who have been identified as having the key attributes, interests and skills that would be suitable to the young person they are supporting. This support is formed through role modelling, developing friendships and engaging in social activities whilst knowing they are safe.
