Children and Young People

Life is filled with challenges that children and young people must navigate as they grow up.  Many follow a straightforward path, but for some, educational expectations, social media and peer pressure can lead to a wide range of issues including, anxiety, depression, eating disorders and self-harm. Supporting young people in their formative years, it vital to help them thrive and build the skills they need for adulthood.

We support the work of voluntary and community organisations who tackle these issues and help to improve mental health and emotional well-being. Some also provide opportunities to work in the local community through volunteering as peer-mentors.
