This storyboard poster explains the aims, methods and results of No Wrong Door, a project run by North Yorkshire County Council to ensure young people access the right services, at the right time and in the right place to meet their needs. Young people who enter care during their teenage years tend to spend considerable periods in residential care. They are more likely to have placement breakdowns and can follow a path of multiple placements, over time becoming distrusting of positive relationships, disengaging from education and training and falling into patterns of risky behaviour.
No Wrong Door is an integrated service for complex and troubled young people. Their needs are addressed within a single team. Operating from two Hubs, No Wrong Door brings together a variety of accommodation options, a range of services and outreach support under one management umbrella. It is a partnership between seven district councils, nine housing providers, health services (including child and adolescent mental health services) and the police.
