Large Group workshops:
Educational workshops around self-esteem and healthy relationships, delivered to whole classes or larger groups. These can be delivered in schools during curriculum time, as well as extra-curricular sessions in both schools and other youth settings, such as youth groups. The sessions can be tailored to meet the different needs of the young people and are designed to be informal and interactive, with the facilitator encouraging young people to explore the topics themselves.

SMALL GROUP WORKSHOPS:
Series of workshops with small groups of 6-10 young people, around self-esteem and healthy relationships. Usually, the 1-hour workshops take place over six consecutive weeks, but these can be slightly longer or shorter depending on the needs of the young people agreed with the school or establishment. The project worker will meet with a member of staff beforehand to discuss the needs of the young people and tailor the sessions accordingly. The project worker will also meet with each young person individually before the workshops begin to prepare them.

Workshops for Parents
We have recently launched workshops for parents to look at some of the topics we address with young people, and to equip parents (including grandparents, carers, etc) with skills to have these conversations with their children. The first workshop we have launched looks at young people and social media. We will be looking to add more topics in the future.
