What We Do at A Way Out
A Way Out delivers services to women and young people aimed at improving lives. We use an outreach model and are extremely effective in engaging hard to reach groups and making significant, measurable changes to both the individual and the community around them.
Our work spans basic outreach, drugs prevention and alternative education all the way through to rehabilitation and intensive life support. Our vision is to educate, support and empower the most vulnerable and at-risk women and young people in society, to live healthy, happy and whole lives, free from poverty, addiction, abuse and harm.
We run a number of individual projects which we run under the banner of A Way Out.
Our recovery services provide intensive group and one to one sessions focussing on young women who require extra support.
RISE stands for Reaching, Inspiring, Supporting and Encouraging families in Stockton. The RISE Project works with families to support & motivate them to make positive changes within their lives.
COACH stands for Creating Opportunities and Casting Hope. The programme aims to provide one-2-one mentoring and support for young people between the ages of 12-25 years.
Weekly community hubs across four communities in Stockton-on-Tees. An integral element of these hubs is the delivery of Food-Plus+; food items and more for those in food poverty.
These services involve outreach in hostels, targeted one to one support, day trips, road shows and group sessions.
We have a portfolio of success and have made changes in the lives of many women and young people across Stockton and the Tees Valley. Last year we reached over 1,307 vulnerable and at risk people.
