What We Do

We Support Children and Youth to Reach Their Full Potential

What We Do

— Training & Education

Young people who are NEET (Not in education, employment or training) can be referred to us directly to engage in FREE courses which will aid their development, with a view to employment, education or training. Our e-learning courses can be done remotely and will provide the young person with the skills to gain employment via Business Administration, Business Management and Customer Service. We also offer FREE CSCS courses for young people who want to pursue a career in the construction or trade industry.

We support young people to build CV’s and provide them with interview skills.

— Advocacy and Mentoring

We support young people and families who need help when dealing with services such as Local Authorities (Youth Offending Services, Probation, Leaving Care Team) Schools, Police. We also support young people and families through the criminal court process.

Our mentoring programme has proven results. We engage with young people in a variety of ways, more importantly, we listen and understand the language of the young people and work with them to ensure that we set clear, measurable and achievable goals.

— Local Authority Support

Sometimes, even the professionals need support! We are experienced in ‘bridging the gap’, between the professionals and the young person. We can understand the language of our young people, but also able to communicate with them effectively. We work on behalf of the Local Authorities to intervene on their more complex cases or the young people referred to as ‘hard to reach’. We work closely with the young person to find out what stimulates and motivates them, and then work on developments steps.

— Workshops

We offer a range of interactive and bespoke workshops to young people, parents and professionals. With the use of case studies, media and guests who have lived experiences, we bring our workshops to life by engaging in group exercises and thought-provoking conversations which really aim to tackle the matters at hand. Our workshops can be delivered in person or remotely. Please contact us for a quote.

— Activities

We engage in a variety of activities with our young people to engage them. Photography, videography and podcasting are some of the ways that we get the young people to express themselves, learn communication skills and how to articulate themselves. We host competitions both virtually and in person, ranging from general knowledge to FIFA competitions on the PlayStation! We also do outdoor activities such as go-karting and paintball or a visit to the Zoo.

— Parenting Support

Parenting is not easy, we don’t get a manual for each child and sometimes there are serious problems that our young people run into that means parents need help.  We offer support in various ways, including advice, advocacy and signposting in areas such as school exclusions, social services, housing, SEN and other issues affecting families. Our safe spaces are a great way to get help or just connect with others who may have experienced or still be facing some of the same issues as you.

Workshops

P4YE workshops are tailored to the audience so that they provide participants with new skills, concepts, information, and a sense of accomplishment. 

There are opportunities for participants to interact and learn actively and we encourage participants to investigate further on their own, while we demonstrate and encourage the practice of using the methods introduced. 

A P4YE workshop is designed so that everyone gets involved so that we create a sense of community or common purpose among its participants.
