The aims of our programmes are:
- To raise awareness about local issues affecting children, young people and their parents/care givers.
- To provide evidence-based information with the aim of enabling and empowering people to make better informed choices and deal with specific issues before they escalate.
- To work regularly with local schools and youth groups to deliver relevant, current workshops/programmes within the local community.
Our current programmes are:
Childline Well Being Champions
This trains young people in the five ways to well-being. Once they are trained, they will be appointed as ‘Childline Well-being Champions’ in their school/college.They will be supported to lead a project, which reaches out to their whole school/college community on how to promote wellbeing. The programme is adaptable for school, college and SEN use.
The pilot for this program was funding by Argus Insurance through their 70th Anniversary fund.
