These educational packages are carefully put together by our mental health nurse and SENco, alongside our SEND Teaching assistant and therapeutic practitioner who is qualified in health and wellbeing, we gather a range of information from professionals and services and use this information alongside the young persons and parents wishes to create a bespoke educational package. Our Senco also specialises in preparing information for young people who require EHCP plans, this can be done with parents whilst consulting with the education provider and local authority prioritising young persons needs and views.
RUOE supports young people with one to one tuition and GCSE revision support groups where we provide GCSE study books and afterschool clubs for young people to either work independently, with a study buddy or one to one worker. Our catch up classes are ran within educational establishments where TA'S come in to support individual's who are behind their development learning milestones, our intensive one to one support is to help young people get to catch up with peers which will then reduce frustration, improve behaviour, reduce stress and combat a negative self image with the aim of empowering young people mentally, academically and emotionally with a holistic approach improving and progressing learning abilities.

Changed Hearts Gang prevention and Intervention programme (C.H.P)
Changed hearts is a prevention and intervention service that works towards creating a family environment using a therapeutic parenting model (structure and nurture). This model allow us to encourage independence and build secure attachments with the young people we work with which will allow us to have a better impact on their lives.
We want to empower young people and create new mindsets through activities that enable young people to develop self-belief, independence, purpose, belonging, and a positive self-image, whilst we help them to develop in the area of consequential thinking.
We want to challenge unhealthy ideologies around gang culture and knife crime through our mentors who have experienced this life and made a transition. We have several mentors who were once gang related but have turned their lives around and have now become outstanding members of society, this creates a level of understanding which is crucial in helping the young people we work with to feel understood.
We use a combination of techniques such as motivational talks, counselling, mentorship, group workshops, a one-week intensive camp retreat intervention where we help young people to develop a new value system through a range of methods. We encourage young people to express themselves through T.shirt design, music and boxing. We work with the family unit to create individualised care plans where families help to design targets to encourage personal development in our young people.
We also work alongside health professionals, families, social workers, churches, youth offending teams and housing to ensure that the young people we work with succeed. We also signpost to other agencies to help families gain the support they need through our referral programmes.
