Thank you for supporting a young person to access HideOut 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 Sunday Club 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.
HideOut 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:
If the HideOut 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.
