We have applied for £10,000 to assist our youth team and provide the young people who are members of that group with meaningful activities. Our youth projects are constantly short of funds, so any additional votes could make a significant difference to our ultimate success.
About the project
We want to provide bespoke supported journeys for young adults, helping them move forward into a better future. Working individually with each young person to understand their specific needs and help them overcome their personal barriers to aid positive wellbeing, e.g. providing training in mental health or gaining qualifications to get back into work. The young adults we target will be hard to reach and will suffer from multiple complex barriers, such as mental health difficulties, unemployment, poverty, lack of qualifications, autism, learning difficulties, etc.
Young adults want to move forward, but due to mental health difficulties and lack of qualifications or skills feel unable to. There are no other services in our area that provide this total package. This project will help to provide relevant training, a route to apprenticeships, learning about their own mental health and how to get the right kind of support.
Tyneside and Northumberland Mind would host a Young Adults Personal Development Group. This would be for between 10 to 12 young adults aged 16-24. The rolling programme would include:
• Introduction to the programme and its benefits
• The two truths and one false game
• What the Youth Coach/Leader is able to offer the participants on the programme
• What the participants would like to do
• What the participants would like to get from the programme
• Ideas for future weeks/programme.
