We are currently setting up our Young Persons Steering Group
As a part of the Looking Forward project we are setting up a Young Persons Steering Group to influence how we run our Children & Young People Therapeutic Programmes & become an effective voice for Young People in Sandwell.
What will the Steering Group do?
One of the aims of the steering group will be to help the Looking Forward project identify the barriers Children & Young People face when accessing emotional well-being & mental health support services & to help us remove or reduce these barriers. The steering group will also be involved in our marketing and designing the way in which sessions are run, giving us a better understanding of young people’s needs and wishes.
Alongside this we want you to address the issues that you feel are important to Children & Young People with regards to emotional well-being & mental health; whether these are local or national. If you feel strongly enough about it then we want to help you change it.
What can the Steering Group offer you?
As well as a chance to affect important issues in your community, being a steering group member will give you hands on experience of how children and young people’s emotional well-being services work, it will allow you to develop skills such as strategic thinking or event organisation. It will also give you the opportunity to add new skills and experiences to your CV and maybe even gain a reference.
If you are interested in becoming a member of our Steering Group, have any questions regarding the Steering Group or just want to know a bit more about it please fill in the contact form below and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
