DOORWAYS Staff and volunteers come from different backgrounds and life experiences and are experienced in providing support in:

  • Emotional well-being
  • Information, advice and guidance
  • Mental health

DOORWAYS serves young people 13-25 throughout East Cleveland, those in need of support with:

  • Confidence building
  • Self-esteem
  • Anxiety and depression;
  • Employability;
  • Communication skills;
  • Addictions

We have particular specialism and success in relation to young people's emotional health and mental well-being and helping them progress in their life journey.

We are well networked and have established pathways in place to receive referrals from many organisations including statutory such as GPs and schools, and voluntary including other support organisations. Our profile has resulted in around a third of our referrals being from individuals in the community who refer themselves. Our door is open.

We recognise that many young people are at risk, facing multiple challenges, and are confident that we can provide support to those with more than one identified issue including: low level mental health; at risk of offending; leaving care; homeless; with a learning disability and/or addiction.

The project is open Monday to Friday and we try to be as flexible as possible with appointments to meet the needs of young people.

What sets us apart from other services is that we are responsive at the point of need and offer open-ended, individually tailored support, co-designed with the young person.

Doorways gives young people coping strategies and skills which they will access and use for the rest of their life. Our clients tell us how the impact of our service has had a positive effect on their health and well-being and has enabled them to resume their role in their family and community.

85% of our clients report an overall improvement in their emotional health and general wellbeing following completion of their sessions with Doorways.

In addition, to the benefits experienced by individuals, our service enables other statutory and non-specialist providers to signpost or refer on their clients who need more bespoke help.

Doorways promotes resilience, encourages prevention and delivers early intervention.
