Help for young people

Sometimes life can be tough as a teenager. Our courses and youth drop-ins offer the help and support that teenagers told us they need and take place at different locations across Buckinghamshire.

Our courses

We have a range of virtual courses for young people aged 11 to 19 (up to 25 with SEND). These usually run in the early evenings. The courses we offer are:

  • How to thrive at school
  • How to cope with stress, anxiety and feeling low
  • How to build confidence and self-esteem

These courses are run online via Microsoft Teams. They run for an hour a week, for six weeks and the average size of a group is around 10 young people.

These courses are based on participation, however we understand that joining a new group can be daunting. Our facilitators will be in touch before you start the course to discuss any specific needs you (or your young person) may have.

Videos highlighting what our courses cover can be found on YouTube.

Our youth drop-ins

If you don't need a course but would like help and support or someone to talk to, we run drop-in sessions for those aged 11 to 19 (up to 25 years for those with SEND). No booking needed.

These sessions are a great way to meet others and have a chat with our friendly team.
