The staff team at Break Through recognise there are often multiple and complex needs that can be reflected in young people’s behaviour. Some young people are not yet equipped with the emotional intelligence to sustain or engage with education. Others need to be re-motivated, refocused and re-engaged towards viewing their futures positively. Our over arching aim is for young people to successfully reintegrate into mainstream provision. If reintegration is not considered a suitable option, in partnership with other agencies Break Through will support the young person onto their next progression route.
