Advocacy & Legal Advice Services

Lately, STN witnessed an increase in a number of people who face different forms of discrimination and injustice such as women face domestic violence and they are not entitled to public recourse because of their legal status, some also suffer from unfair treatment by their employers; landlords; homelessness, etc.

These vulnerable groups desperately need the provision of legal advice aid and assistance. STN aims to tackle unmet legal needs and we believe that everyone should access justice when other routes to justice are being closed off.

STN has now worked with a group of professional solicitors who specialise in immigration, housing, and others to help our beneficiaries who face problem with housing, immigration, domestic violence, welfare rights, and others.

Through this partnership and cross-referrals help us to provide specialist and independent legal advice, advocacy, mediation, and representation services to our local community to protect and ensure the positive health and well-being of residents, clients, partners, and all staff.

We offer high quality, personalised services that help our beneficiaries to achieve real improvements to their situations.

We will also have an appointed caseworker to provide essential specialist advice and other legal services with the help of dedicated volunteers.

        We offer Community Services in the form of

        Outreach 

        STN provides outreach programs to help vulnerable people who, for a variety of reasons, might not have access to mainstream services. We aim to promote Community Enhancement and create a fairer society for all. We know that disadvantaged people in the community feel detached from society; this can create various psychological issues which may lead to depression with its many negative repercussions.

        We appoint volunteers who enjoy helping others and improving their community. We offer outreach over the phone, face to face, sometimes visiting people at home, or accompanying people to GP, hospital appointment, court, local authority housing and social work teams, deliver essential stuff to people who need immediate support. We also liaise with service providers on behalf of our beneficiaries and referring cases to appropriate specialist providers as required.

        We have multi-lingual staff who are fully trained in providing effective services, advising clients on which benefits can help them and how to deal with the Department for Work and Pensions, HMRC and local authority benefit offices. We also provide outreach to single parent’s mums especially destitute asylum seekers and refugees to learn the language, collect old supplies to kids in a homeless shelter, and etc. We conduct it in a group or one to one basis outreach support service.

        Peer Mentoring and Befriending

        We provide peer mentoring and befriending services because it is a mutually beneficial, purposeful relationship in which an individual gives his or her time to help another make changes in their life.

        We aim to make a real difference for people who are struggling with the modern world’s many adversities.  We know that as we get older friends and relatives move on, loved ones pass away, our health can suffer and mobility problems make it hard to get out and about, stay in touch with people or form new friendships. This isolation inhibits communication, making it difficult to tell others that you are feeling lonely. We aim to combat loneliness for those who are struggling.

        There are some statistics said that

        • Half of all UK citizens aged 75 and over live alone. 1 in 10, more than a million, people aged over 65 say they often feel lonely.
        • Half of our pensioners consider the television their main form of company.

        We offer a specialist befriending project aimed at women from BAMER communities and new emigrants who are settling in the UK but find themselves marginalised and unable to identify with their new environment.

        • We offer Call in Time Telephone Befriending by our befriender will phone at agreed time for a chat
        • Face to face Befriending services; this often involve befriender to visit our beneficiaries in their home, perhaps for a cup of tea and a or accompanying them to an activity (such as a trip to a cafe or the theatre). In some cases, a volunteer may accompany the older person to occasional hospital or doctor’s appointments.

        Participants are matched according to gender, language, ethnicity and the personal issues they need to address. A peer mentor can serve as a helping hand, a sounding board, and a referral service – providing support, encouragement, and information.  Skills & Training Network mentors are fully acquainted with our service policies; they can give support in developing ICT, English, Basic Skills, Employability Skills, and etc.

        Each Peer Mentoring program is unique and tailored to the needs of the trainee.  All STN  mentors are familiar with our rules and procedures and if unsure of the circumstances can direct the novice to someone in authority who can properly address their concerns.

        Participants’ views about STN

        Our beneficiaries enjoy the friendly, multicultural, and professional environment.

        We achieved excellent success stories, positive and rewarding achievements for our participants, local communities. We have got lots of case studies to showcase our hard work to win the trust and confidence of every member that we help.

        STN educates, empowers, inspires and trains the needier individuals in our community; helping people to overcome barriers and improve their lives. Sharing this journey is a joyful and rewarding experience for all involved.

        We have a strong track record in dealing with vulnerable and marginalised people who face multiple barriers, often worsened by long term unemployment and they progressed to positive routes and become role models.

        We get to know our participants well enough to tailor our programs, to offer the right services to their needs and aspirations. By building rapport we develop strong working relationships based on friendship, trust and mutual respect.

        Mentoring & Befriending

        Voluntary MENTORING & BEFRIENDING is a mutually beneficial, purposeful relationship in which an individual gives his or her time to help an another make changes in their life.

        Sometimes some of us need help to get by. We all know what it’s like to feel left out. Loneliness is a lingering concern for isolated people, especially in later life. Not everyone has a family or friends they can turn to for guidance and advice.

        Mentoring and befriending can make a real difference for people who are struggling with the modern world’s many adversities. It covers a range of affirmative activities in which one person, who is not family or a close friend, gives support and encouragement to another. It can be conducted on one-to-one or group bases; in community, statutory and business settings.

        Skills and Training Network (STN) focus on four main areas of mentoring and befriending:

        • Re-enter education, find employment, develop a career.
        • Improve relationships, reduce unwanted behaviour, help integrate into the community.
        • Develop personal skills, build confidence, establish life goals.
        • Build trust, encourage resilience, reduce isolation.

        Our volunteers come from the local community and offer a variety of support actions to:

        • Socially isolated people and those with health problems who might need encouragment to re-engage with their communities.
        • Unemployed people wanting to build self-confidence and develop new skills to help them find work.
        • Disadvantaged young people who may lack positive role models.
        • Pensioners.
        • Refugees.
        • Ethnic minorities looking for information about life in the UK.

        Mentoring and befriending relationships are mutually beneficial with both service users and volunteers amply rewarded personally and socially – obtaining new skills, making friends and having stimulating experiences while making a real contribution to their communities.

        STN mentoring and befriending programs can be formal or informal – although to make a real difference mentors must be thoroughly trained, well supervised and fully informed of the legal, ethical and professional protocols.

        FOR VOLUNTEER MENTORS

        STN mentoring and befriending meetings are informal yet highly informative discussions essential to building a positive productive team ethic. Share your knowledge and learn from the experiences of others.

        Our common ground meetings allow befriending staff and committee members to meet others involved in local befriending projects, to discuss and explore topical issues around befriending and contribute to good practice in befriending at a national level.

        BEFRIENDING SERVICES

        Befriending is a service beneficial to people who are socially excluded in some way. These range from vulnerable children to people with disabilities or mental health issues, disaffected young people, people with long term health conditions, those who are socially excluded because of cultural factors (e.g. religion, language barrier), people who are older, those living with dementia and their carers.

        • Half of all UK citizens aged 75 and over live alone.
        • 1 in 10, more than a million, people aged over 65 say they often feel lonely.
        • Half of our pensioners consider the television their main form of company.

        As we get older friends and relatives move on, loved ones pass away, our health can suffer and mobility problems make it hard to get out and about, stay in touch with people or form new friendships. This isolation inhibits communication, making it difficult to tell others that you are feeling lonely.

        STN provide regular networking opportunities for our service users to meet; share experiences; exchange information, ideas and research. We also host an annual conference for coordinators, when we try to address emerging social policy themes relevant to the sector.

        We also offer a specialist befriending project aimed at women from Middle Eastern communities who are settling in the UK but find themselves marginalised and unable to identify with their new environment. Some have few visitors and feel detached from society; this can create various psychological issues which may lead to depression with its many negative repercussions.

        All STN befrienders and mentors are volunteers and freely give their time to help others. If you would like to contribute to our cause by making a donation, please go to our contacts page for the relevant information.
