New app connects young people with services in Yorkshire
Emily Suffield and Katie Phipps from Leeds Beckett University have developed it after working alongside the Choices Team in Yorkshire which offers help to young people experiencing issues such as homelessness, leaving care, criminal justice system involvement and unemployment.
collaborated with staff and clients at St Giles to understand the areas of people’s lives that were important to them, but often found difficult to find help with. They young people identified a range of areas covering health, practical advice and support, education training and employment, relationships and getting active.
After comprehensive and detailed research, Emily and Katie created the app and tested it with clients and colleagues. It is hoped that the app will be ready to publish to android and apple stores in the near future. In the meantime, you can follow its progress on Twitter @ChoicesConnect
