The Anchor service is Active Connections' short term respite service. During times of turbulence, Anchor is designed to give young people in crisis a place and, more importantly, the time and space to reflect on their personal situations.
We provide young people who are engaged in out day service with the opportunity to spend 24-48 hrs away from home. This is a fun and safe experience in which the young will be supported to de-stress and get the head right to get home.
This time away also given parents and foster parents time to focus on self care.
