Support for vulnerable young people who have experienced trauma and are at risk of falling further through the gaps due to Covid-19.

by Dawn Youthworker in Falmouth, England, United Kingdom

I Believe that every young person has potential no matter what.  To unlock that potential they need an emotionally available adult to Believe in them. To find the key for them to work out how to cope with trauma, emotions, navigating life. 

Covid-19 has had a massive impact on young people's mental health and well-being and so many teenagers are telling us they feel low, anxious, stressed, under pressure and even suicidal.  There are examples of young people becoming victims of Exploitation, Anti-Social Behaviour and at risk of entering the Criminal Justice System.

The gaps are becoming wider and some young people are falling or at risk of falling through, we have a chance to catch them and provide a space where we can work alongside them and create a needs-led programme that meets young people where they are.

The vision is that we will work with young people to provide support, listen, build trusted relationships, work through their emotions and work out coping strategies alongside them. Every young person will have their own needs led journey matching their unique story and the plan is this support will have an impact on young people's future and support them consistently and for as long as they need us.
