ENGAGE Youth Befriender

  • VO74372


Description

Engage is a befriending project which will be delivered across areas of deprivation in East Lothian.

We will engage with 8-14 year olds who are in one of the following target groups: looked after children, siblings of additional needs children, young people attached to CAMHS/mental health services, looked after young people and those with chaotic lifestyles and home environments.

We aim to aim to have lots of fun and choice in activities while fostering a culture of healthy self-respect, positivity, increased self-confidence and motivation. With greater awareness of acceptable behaviour we hope to bring positivity and nurture to children that are experiencing very difficult and challenging lifestyles.
