Working with children in care and care leavers

St Christopher’s is proud to have been working in partnership with the Isle of Man Government, Department of Social Care and Manx Care since 2004. Our services in this region are wholly contracted to the Isle of Man Government.

Our initiatives on the Isle of Man include:

  • Semi-independent community living, providing supported transition to independence and adulthood
  • Link workers providing a young person-centred, joined-up service between our children’s homes and aftercare services to prepare to support young people in their transition to semi-independence
  • Smaller children’s homes – flexible and adaptable care tailored to the individual needs of young people
  • Community intervention – working with young people at risk of offending or admission to the secure care home, mediation, restorative justice and group work
  • Specialist Edge of Care provision – providing support to families and young people at risk of entering the care system by virtue of intervention support in partnerships with Manx care and other professionals
  • Education day support – helping any young person in our care to get back into mainstream education or training
