One on 1's

Youth Support at home

Welcome to 1 Compass’s One on 1’s scheme. If you would like support for your child on a fortnightly bases from a wellbeing worker, please fill out this information as accurately as possible.

The sessions are to be operated in connection with schools and home life. One on 1’s can take place at home, in our community centre and telephone communication is also available in if required. Please be aware that sessions will not occur without a responsible adult present.

What we do:

One on 1s intervention sessions will start with icebreakers tailored to the youth members individual interests and standard of engagement. The aim of these sessions is to build on trust and open lines of communication. Various approaches may be adopted to initially engage with an individual such as: 


1. General conversations

2. Sporting activities in the community garden or the adjacent community sports field

3. Artistic activities in the community hall, on paper or online


How we do it:

Support focused on listening and discussion surrounding the young person’s emotional needs. Youth stars will be used to track youth members to see where support is needed.

By using a variety of activities in sessions we look to promote: 


1. Exercises related to anxiety, awareness, and motivational habits

2. Happiness, positivity for the future and increase resilience

3. A decrease anti-social behaviour and support a healthy integration with others


The self-assessment youth star helps young people to track friendship, education, family, confidence, emotional wellbeing, and communication, which allows the individual to visually capture their journey. It will also measure the impact of the youth programme and its activities.


Time frame and support aims:

The programme will provide support and mentorship with One on 1 intervention sessions with an allocated 1 Compass staff member. These sessions may continue for a period of months. We aim to make progress within three months, and close them from the program, but if there is no indication that support has been able to benefit the individual or other factors in their life has resulted in a decrease of wellbeing, we will continue to support until the young person is stable. The maximum time of support will be twelve months, before the young person’s file is closed. They will be recommended to other services who can support, but also have the option to make a re-referral to restart the One on 1s intervention if extenuating circumstances are apparent. When a youth member has shown a considerable increase in their wellbeing star, we would consider closing their account to allow space for other youth in need. The opportunity to remain in the other youth groups and in other projects would remain.

If a youth member fails to attend two scheduled sessions, contact will be made to check on their wellbeing. Failing a lack of communication after one month the youth members file would be closed to allow a new member to enrol. The opportunity to re-enrol and resume support in the future would be possible.
