Freephone for vulnerable children and young people
To set up a Freephone line for vulnerable children and young people in Kent allowing them to easily access the support services offered by the Young Lives Foundation including essential advocacy support.
January 2016 - December 2020
The Young Lives Foundation
The most vulnerable children and young people requiring the support of the Young Lives Foundation are also the least likely to have access to mobile phones with credit or the internet, especially those who are homeless or missing. This creates a barrier and can delay young people receiving vital support they need.
a Freephone line will allow children and young people to contact our service at a time convenient to them and receive immediate support and advice with no cost or delay.
To start a Freephone line for vulnerable children and young people
Activities» We will monitor the calls we receive
By the amount of telephone calls received and logged
This will enable young people to make a free phone call when in need of help.
The only risk is if other people may use the Freephone for routine calls, we will do our best to monitor this
we will be able to say how many children and young people have used the Freephone line, the reason why and the result.
