First aid

Help young people learn essential first aid skills and build the confidence and willingness to help someone in an emergency. It will also help young people assess and manage risks and make informed decisions.

Empathy and migration

Understanding why someone might have to leave their home will help young people develop empathy for people arriving in a new place. We can help young people to challenge assumptions about migrants, asylum seekers and refugees as well as develop mutual respect and understanding.

Back to better

Coronavirus has had a significant impact on all of us, particularly young people. This workshop takes young people on a journey of reflection - thinking on the things that have happened, how we copied and how we can prepare for the future.

Tackling loneliness

Explore what loneliness is and how it feels to be lonely. We encourage learners to use creative activities to overcome loneliness in themselves as well as reaching out to others who might be feeling lonely.
