The formal opening of The Avenue was held on the 14 November, by members of the trust and Margaret Reader, who has led the Promoting Independence project across Lincolnshire for young people with additional needs. The Avenue is a new venture that has been set up by LWCT and works in partnership with the Louth 13+ Youth and community centre premises, to support young people from 19 years of age with additional needs. The centre is based on Park Ave, Louth, LN11 8BX.
The purpose of the Avenue is to develop a seamless transition into adulthood for young people, with their families, in a considered, inclusive and appropriate way for each individual. The aim is to enable the fulfilment of aspirations, through the broadening of horizons and development of stakeholder relationships, whilst continually ensuring the young person’s voice is heard and building on their skill enhancement.
We commit to upholding the values of:
Inclusive - we will include parents/ carers and other people in their lives
Innovative - we will provide opportunities through engaging, imaginative and fun activities
Aspirational - we will support all young people to achieve their potential and goals
Purposeful - we will always enable our young people to move towards purposeful outcomes
Safe - we will ensure all young people are safe at all times
We will work within these values, in order to maintain a provision that embraces challenge in order to support limitless aspirations, through wide ranging opportunities in order to broaden thinking and experiences beyond an individual’s imagination. To provide an environment that utilises skilled staff to ensure an effective progressive journey through into adulthood, in order to allow all young people to achieve their aspirations.
