Bexley adolescent support service - Porchlight

Some young people need additional support to help them reach their full potential. That’s where BASS can help.
The service works with 8-17 year olds across Bexley, providing one-to-one support at home, in school, or anywhere the young person feels safe.

We’ve designed the service to help young people with all kinds of support needs, whether they’re having difficulty managing their relationships, getting into trouble at school or having problems at home that are affecting their education.
Our support workers make young people feel valued and listened to. We can help them to develop the social, emotional and relationship skills they’ll need throughout life.
Over a period of up to 12 weeks, we work with the young person to develop and follow a support plan containing achievable goals specific to their situation and needs.
Creative approaches are used to engage with even the hardest-to-reach young people, building connections through activities.
We also work alongside other practitioners and services to develop the young person’s relationships with their family, community and school.

We support young people on a 121 basis that meet at least one of the following criteria:
• At risk of exclusion from education
• Poor attendance in education
• Poor behaviour in education
• Family difficulties – e.g. domestic abuse – impacting on education
