We provide a fully integrated, wrap around service model. Every year we provide support services and programs to more than 300 young people and their families.
I’m now an experienced English/Drama teacher specialising in flexible education but I’ve had a long journey to get to where I am today. My early childhood was marked by a very disruptive home life with bouts of homelessness, living in care and sporadic schooling.
I became a client of Phoenix House in my late teens and I remember clearly a supportive, kind and caring environment for the first time in my life. It was like I could exhale for the first time.
What I remember most about my time being supported by Phoenix House was the laughter. I was so surprised that I could get the support I needed without it being a dark and depressing experience. This approach really helped me feel positive for my future and end encouraged me to find what I was passionate about. My journey to becoming a teacher was a long one but with Phoenix House’s support at the beginning I would never have got there.
I worked hard to become a teacher but will always acknowledge the significant role Phoenix House played in helping me have a future.
Phoenix House provides early intervention and support services for young people. If you or someone you know needs support to finish school, get work experience, life skills, individual and family counselling – we’re here to help.
