Working with multi-professional services across Oxfordshire, One-Eighty is established to connect Children and Young People (aged 4-18) with a positive learning experience. This is delivered through academic tutoring, therapeutic enterprise, goal-orientated mentoring and family engagement, with both groups and individuals.
One-Eighty is a psychological behavioural support charity that seeks to inspire young people, often on the fringes of education and society, to live motivated and successful lives. Young people we work with are often struggling with difficult family circumstances, be it witnessing domestic abuse within the home, acting as carers to family members, dealing with parents taken into custody, suffering a bereavement, or living within the care system. These difficulties then translate into problems in school, with poor attendance, low educational achievement and disruptive behaviour being common, as are criminal activity, drug or alcohol abuse or self-harm.
As an independent charity, we seek to fill gaps in provision from statutory services, and have the flexibility to into a young person’s home and community in addition to their school, in order to identify the cause of their behavioural problems. From this platform, we design an intervention plan specific to their needs as we seek to re-engage and re-inspire these young people.
One-eighty Limited aims to:
- To fill gaps in existing statutory services, and work with families, schools and the local community to provide academic tutoring, mentoring, and therapeutic support for vulnerable young people.
- To build links between families, schools and local authorities and provide training to ensure young people receive consistent, targeted support.
