We have developed a programme to support children and young people with emotional, social, behavioural and mental health issues. We are working on a number of model programmes that can be adapted and delivered within a range of school and community settings, either interlinked or stand-alone dependent on the need of the beneficiary.
Sessions are delivered by experienced facilitators and include topics such as self-esteem, resilience, self-harm and protective behaviours. The emphasis is on interactive, age-appropriate activities designed to increase self-esteem, confidence and aspirations in the participants. Where possible, group sessions contain model children, so that children who struggle with their behaviour have role models within the group.
For children and young people to have a better understanding of feelings and emotions
For children and young people to have a better understanding of how to manage those feelings
To develop children and young people’s concentration skills
Sessions are tailored to best meet the needs of those taking part. However, the format is based on tools, activities and techniques that have been developed by our previous experiences and in consultation with the children and young people we have worked with.
