Me and Others
For ages 11 – 16 years old.
This programme aims to provide young people with an opportunity to explore and learn about what relationships are all about. It highlights what healthy and unhealthy relationships look like, our personal boundaries within these relationships and where to go if we need help regarding this.
The programme aims to equip young people with the tools and confidence to make safe choices within relationships and empower them to practice these alongside utilising their support network if they have any concerns.
The group runs for 1 hour 45 mins per week for 10 weeks
