Our engagement programmes help young people to engage within their families, education, work, communities or environment.

The need

We understand that young people may need support and information to enable them to feel motivated to engage positively in the world and make informed decisions. Our engagement programmes assume young people are finding barriers to engagement, including gaps in their knowledge, and are in need of support to overcome them.

Our response

We support young people to engage with their families, education, work, communities and the environment. Building on what they can do and where they are at, we work with their strengths to support them to engage towards a positive future. Our approach includes creating a safe environment, with secure relationships, providing opportunities and new experiences to learn.

Our approach

Awareness: We support young people to become critically conscious of themselves and their situation to become aware of the barriers preventing their engagement and ability to make informed choices.

Choice: We support young people to understand their choices and the abilities they have to take control of their lives by overcoming barriers of engagement.

Action: We support young people towards taking action to engage in positive activities and make changes for themselves by becoming engaged and wanting change.

The outcomes we achieve include increased:

Increased Awareness Of Strengths And Challenges Increased Self Esteem And Confidence

Increased Awareness Of Positive And Negative Choices Behaviour And Actions Increased Awareness Of Positive And Negative Relationships And Situations

Increased Aspirations And Commitment Increased Awareness Of Resources Strategies And Services
