We received an incredible donation of £68,400 over 27 months to deliver a project working with young people experiencing isolation. The grant also supported our existing projects by funding one youth worker at each project, ensuring we have been able to be inclusive and meet the needs of all young people. We worked with the participants in small groups on a referral basis and delivered the project in cohorts lasting a term-and-a-half.
The sessions included ice breakers and team building games as well as targeted work around areas such as wellbeing, confidence, mental health and building resilience. Through the project we delivered a range of day trips and a residential trip to an Eco Farm. As part of the project we also delivered street-based outreach sessions during the school holidays where we worked with at risk young people around education and career opportunities.
