Since 2013 we have been operating an outreach unit based at the Swaffham Rugby Football Club. This was started originally to cut down on the amount of time young people were having to spend travelling to us in Norwich. It currently operates three days of the week Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with the minimum of five young people in any one day.
The unit takes up to a maximun 12 young people and as with all Respect4us units the first priority is engagement. We make sure the young people are listened to and enjoy their experience of coming to us. Our low staff-student ratio enables us to spend a lot of time listening to individuals and helping them to address their issues. Throughout there is a programme that keeps them active, developing physical fitness, social and team working skills. All the young people take OCR qualifications in literacy and numeracy KS4 are assisted in careers and progression on to further education and training.
