Prior to Lockdown the charity ran four different projects CWALA, Sharp Minds, Brunswick Youth Project. Since Lockdown came into effect the charity has restructured and combined them into two.
We offer one-to-one mentoring sessions with young people who are at risk of exclusion or in crisis and are in urgent need of support. We also offer bespoke early intervention with small groups for young people who need additional support around positive choices, safety, mental health, risk of exclusion and a wide range of other issues.
Our work is based in Warwick District, a diverse area where affluence and poverty are merely streets away from one another. Our work is done both in schools and at our office.
"Young People First’s mentoring has had a huge impact on our students. The mentoring that takes place provides a safe place for students to open up and talk about issues to someone they can trust. Young People First have also been coming in each week to deliver group workshops, this educates students in e-safety, body image, self-confidence and other important topics. Students look forward to mentoring and all have given very positive feedback.”
