We work with Devon County Council (DCC) and Young Devon, as part of the Eastern Hub, responding to the needs of young people who require supported accommodation and as such we are commissioned under DCC’s contribution to homelessness prevention for 16-17 year olds.
We are also an approved provider with the Peninsula Authorities set up by Social Services to encompass Devon, Plymouth, Torbay, Cornwall and Dorset.
We are building relationships with other Young Persons’ services, including Y-Smart, Youth Offending Team, YMCA, Careers South West, the YES centre and St. Loyes. Being linked with various Young Persons’ services in the area enables us not only to work in the best way possible with each individual who comes to the project, but also means that each young person who comes to Esther Community has the opportunity to engage with all the projects and services that are available to them.
Based in the St. David’s district of Exeter, we have a good working relationship with the Clock Tower Surgery. This NHS provider is competent in assessing the medical needs of those who come to the project and works closely with us to make sure that the client receives the best possible medical care.
Over the years we have built good relationships with local churches who have supported us with our fundraising efforts, donated various items to the project and remembered us in their prayers.
Tom has worked alongside our residents since October 2013 as part of the Exeter Medical School SSU (Special Study Unit) ‘Strengthening Our Adaptive Powers’
