Our LAC Mentoring Club has enjoyed a really successful 2014, as the young people had access to a range of support activities and information that helps them make a positive transition in to adulthood, further education, volunteering and some instances independent living
Throughout the year, the young people have worked closely with our team of mentors and therapists in order to improve their self-resiliency, self confidence, and life skills. This year we developed a tailor made programme of workshops, centred around emotional health and wellbeing, which were based on topics and issues raised by the young people which were then transformed and delivered by our very own therapists.
Highlights of this club have seen the group take part in music sessions with the ‘Rock Academy’ as well as healthy cooking and art & craft workshops.
We have also had Big Brother 2013 Winner Sam Evans visit the group throughout the year to talk about his general experiences. The young people have also created their own ‘blog’ where they write and upload their own articles about mentoring club. Some of the young adults have also become peer mentors.
The work at the LAC Mentoring club will continue in the new year, where the young people will have continued access to valuable and in some instances, life changing support.
