Health

At Bold Leap, we recognise the importance of good mental and physical health in living a happy, fulfilled life. 

This is why we ensure young people are provided with information on the local GP, dentist, and other health services, including mental health services, upon arrival. Staff support the young person to access relevant health services, including identifying relevant therapeutic or other treatments in line with their relevant plans. If needed and where the young person has requested this, staff support young people to book and attend health appointments, with the aim of enabling the young person to manage their own health needs increasingly independently.

Young people in supported accommodation should be responsible for meeting their own day-to-day health needs with support and guidance from the accommodating authority and staff as required and in line with their care/pathway plan.
