A new project to help young people in need has opened its doors in Huddersfield.
A five-bedroom property in Trinity Street has been opened by 1Ark Project Ltd to provide semi-independent supported living for 16 to 25-year-olds who are coming out of care.
As well as providing accommodation, the premises will also be used to run one-to-one sessions in the areas of health and well-being, staying safe, budgeting and employment, education and training.
There will also be regular sessions on music and media, food preparation and hygiene, help in accessing education or training opportunities and teaching skills to help young people cope with stressful situations.
1Ark project director Craig Simpson said it was hoped the Trinity Steet housing unit – which has nine staff – would become the first of several across Kirklees.
