Mental health, well-being and resilience

We support the mental health, well-being and resilience of children, young people and young adults. We love empowering the young people who work with us to develop themselves personally so that they can take control of their futures. Many who come to us experience low self-esteem and a lack of confidence in their abilities- we believe that giving them a sense of value and purpose is a major step towards building their confidence. With confidence young people can do anything they set their minds to!

Providing purpose

We offer a range of activities for children and young people to get involved in and have fun, from sports and creative play, to dance, songwriting, local heritage and much more. These activities not only provide opportunities for young people to connect with others but also develop their social skills, enable them to feel included, and promote positive mental health.

Residentials, community events, outdoor education and youth clubs give young people opportunities to develop confidence in working with others on shared tasks and goals. By working on projects together they value each other’s contributions and feel a sense of pride in what they can do.

Mentoring and support

Through mentoring we support young people to further their social development and emotional empowerment. We know how important it is to listen to, nurture and inspire young people- by adopting a non-judgmental approach we help them to boost their skills, make better decisions, and gain new perspectives on their lives and futures. To find out more about the mentoring support we provide, take a look at our projects Brotherhood and Girls CAN.

All our youth workers and facilitators are trained in developing mental toughness which helps young people to become more resilient, positive, and better able to find solutions in all areas of their lives and for their communities. How we deliver our services is really important to us and we make sure we have the right people, in the right place at the right time to do this. We build our support around the needs of each individual as we feel this is the best way to get the best outcomes for everyone.

Providing safe spaces for everyone

Our projects and activities provide safe spaces for young people to explore their identities and be comfortable with who they are. We want every young person who engages with us to feel good about themselves and feel at home with Powered by CAN.
