YOUNG PEOPLE SUPPORT PROJECT (empowerment, Learning, social inclusion)
Hand of Solace offers Support, friendship and help to disadvantaged young people by training volunteers to visit young people and their families and offer them informal, friendly and confidential support in their own home and within the community.
The befriending service aims to enable young people feel included and confident by involving and supporting them to take charge fully of the activities. Young people will be enabled to develop, deliver and evaluate the activities.Our volunteers shall use positive role modelling to empower and improve young people’s self-confidence, self-efficacy and independence. We have developed our befriending sessions to be tailored to young people's individual needs.
Participating young persons are those with a combination of the following:
· Low or limited aspirations
· Low confidence
. Isolated young people
· Weak sense of personal agency
· Limited understanding of career opportunities
· Undeveloped ‘soft skills’
