Youth Development and Special Behavioural Needs

The Humphrey Head team has a well established history or working in partnership with youth development organisations. 


Princes Trust Residential's

We work in conjunction with the PTT 12 Week program to provide the residential aspect of the course. With a well developed strategy to build independence and effective relationships over the course. Groups leave better able to adapt to the coming challenges and more able to give and receive the support needed.

Humphrey Head is an excellent venue for Princes Trust Type groups with almost all activities offsite and very little close by to attract the young people away from the venue: Humphrey head make the visiting leaders job much easier.

We have a range of alternative accommodation bases we utilise with the teams to allow multiple groups to work simultaneously - without meeting.

One of the fantastic advantages of Humphrey head or our other remote bases is that with no onsite adventure activities groups that visit us get specifically selected activities suited to the group rather than just what activities happen to be available onsite. This means that every activity is directly related to the groups developments needs and lead to some great results. 

National Citizenship Scheme

The Humphrey Head team run the NCS scheme residential element for an amazing amount of young people literally thousands of them - more than anyone else we know in fact. It means we are very good at it. Humphrey Head though is typically available during the normal NCS period to deliver NCS residential from (we take over 3 of the large YHA hostels for our own courses). With indoor accommodation for 50 with an additional camping capacity of 150. Humphrey head is an ideal venue for summer adventure programmes.

Youth Service, Connexions, YTS, Do it for Real

If you are an experienced youth worker you probably recognised these bodies and schemes. Suffice to say we have been around a while and have delivered countless programmes and residential for these groups. We can build you an excellent programmes for your organisation as well.
