Platform Youth Workers
Platform youth workers run the youth sessions and are here to help and support you on a one-to-one basis.
Youth work is based on a curriculum of topics we feel are important to your lives. Activities with Platform youth workers are discussions, focus groups or activities which can help you with:
- communication skills
- increasing confidence
- making better decisions
- managing your emotions better
- relationships with friends and family
- issues with drugs and alcohol
- dealing with conflict
Advocacy - If you are in a situation you find challenging at school or home, then we can help by giving you advice and acting as advocates. This can mean going to meetings or making phone calls to represent you and speak on your behalf.
Parents and Carers - Platform Youth Workers can also offer advice and support to adults living with young people - so if you think you could benefit from speaking to one of the team - give us a call and it and can be arranged.
For further information: contact 07825 098689 or drop in - there are always youth workers available at Platform on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 5 - 8.30pm.
