Local Solutions

Based in Liverpool, Local Solutions works with young people facing severe and multiple disadvantage, including through providing a hostel which reaches around 300 young people each year.

Noticing that there was a particular cohort of young people who kept falling in and out of hostel services, Local Solutions decided to establish a different approach to support these service users through the development of Intense Mentoring, which has had a transformational effect on a significant number of service users.

Lankelly Chase supports Local Solutions in this work to: extend the reach of the service through the employment of a full time Intense Mentor; enhance and refine the model; enhance the organisation’s systems for demonstrating evidence-based outcomes; and continue to play a significant role in developing a movement for change in the way services are delivered for young people facing severe and multiple disadvantage.
