Being Part of Something Positive
Exclusion and isolation are huge issues for many of the young people on our programmes, although they may not word it so explicitly themselves.
We want our participants to feel like they have an opportunity to succeed, that their voices matter, and that they are included in something bigger than themselves. Our programmes actively draw people in to group activities with others experiencing similar things, fostering an attitude of tackling problems together and supporting others in their peer groups.
Our participants tell us time and again how important it is for them to feel like they are part of a team, part of a friendship group; a safe space where they are able to raise their voice amongst others who will listen and discuss their opinions.
