Youth Engagement


Trusted adults creating a therapeutic, trauma responsive and engaging environment, enabling children and young people to build resilience and overcome adversity. 


YOUTH8 1:1 project focuses on engaging with children and young people on a 1:1 basis. Their engagement mentor will support them to build resilience, improve confidence and tackle their ACEs. This will improve behaviour and engagement in school, in the community and in their home life. 

This service is open to 4-25 year olds.



YOUTH8 + project focuses on all we offer in our YOUTH8 1:1 project and more. Here, children and young people will be able to access English & Maths tutoring and have the opportunity to complete ASDAN certificates to support their personal development.

This service is open to secondary school aged young people.


 "  The whole process has been positive and encouraging for us, and has finally given me the hope that we can both move forward with our lives, from what has sometimes been quite dark and difficult times. I will never be able to thank you enough. "

Our trusted adults provide engaging therapeutic sessions across areas such as education, life skills and resilience to help young people achieve their full potential despite having experienced adversity and trauma. 


By matching young people and their mentor on common interests to begin the process of engagement, once a trusted relationship has formed targets can be set and monitored, no matter how big or small.


Working together weʼll provide an outcome and platform to continue positive development even after the placement has finished.
