A. Our young people could best be described as "good children who are making bad decisions and choices". Teenbratcampuk is especially helpful to troubled teens who may struggle with a variety of emotional and behavioural concerns including family issues, loss and bereavement, addictions and relationships.
Q. Why should we trust you with our son/daughter?.
A. I have a current enhanced DBS check and have been working with young people and vulnerable adults for over 16 years.
Q. Can we have contact with our son/daughter on the programme?.
A. Due to our remote field location, telephone calls are generally not permitted as this would break the continuity of the programme, however, you may contact us weekly by phone or text and either we will update you on your young persons progress or you will be able to talk to your young person, if they wish to do so.
Q. Is there any financial help available to fund your programme?
A. Unfortunately there is no external financial help available that we are aware of.
Q. How long do most young people stay?
A. The minimum stay is 7 days, however, the average stay can be up to 14 days or longer. Some young people may need to stay longer, depending on how quickly they respond to the programme.
Q. How can I make the payment if my application is successful ?
A. All payments can be made by either BACS or PayPal (please note that this method will incur a 3.6% surcharge).
