    Abstract

    In order to address the specific needs of the young vulnerable female population who make up the client base of their young women’s project ‘Time for Change’, Up-2-Us designed a monitoring tool for use with their service users. This Strength and Resilience Monitor (SRM) tool was intended to help identify the unique needs of the young women they support, described as ‘high risk’ in regards to offending, substance use and harm to self. It was additionally intended to provide the means to discuss concerns identified on an ongoing basis and record changes over time. The tool was designed using a strengths-based methodology aimed at identifying and promoting the positive aspects of their lives.
