We are always working towards empowering young people to access education, employment or training by removing barriers to learning, improve self worth and build on confidence. We can provide 1:1 and group sessions in an informal and holistic approach. We are able to attend schools and provide individualised learning plans or goal setting approaches. These sessions are delivered by qualified youth workers and mentors.
We able to deliver and support our women only workshops and accredited qualifications to empower groups of women within communities on promoting a positive approach to health and well-being. And help to support self-care and raise self worth and confidence building.
These programs are delivered by women only in a sensitive environment to meet needs of all learners.
We are able to deliver one to one or group sessions with young children
Many of the young children we support have very little opportunity to explore their emotions and how they really feel. Our mentoring sessions provide a neutral and informal environment. They will be able to explore numerous issues from self regulating, defining emotions, developing social and emotional skills through informal yet fun activities. Regardless of what might be going on at home, the time they spend 1:1 or group work.
Like all children and young people, we will help them to try and find their way in the world, to work out who they are, identify their strenghts and skills and how to feel comfortable in their own skin. We offer a befriending and mentoring service to compliments the needs of the child, school and home. These sessions are delivered by EYF Practitioners.
