No Wrong Door

No Wrong Door is a new way of providing support to young people who are within or on the edge of the care system.

It replaces traditional council-run young peoples’ homes with hubs which combine residential care with fostering.

North Yorkshire have created two hubs, one in Scarborough to serve the east of the county, whilst one in Harrogate serves the west.

Each hub has a dedicated team which includes:

  • A life coach who is a clinical psychologist;
  • A speech therapist;
  • Two community foster families who work out of the hub and are part of the professional team; and
  • Community supported lodging places for 16 and 17-year-olds, again
    staffed by people who are specially trained and are part of the
    professional team.

Every young person in the No Wrong Door programme is given one
key worker supported by a single team of trusted and skilled workers.
These workers stick with the young person through thick and thin to
access the right services at the right time and in the right place to
meet their needs.
