Summary

This project will provide urgent support for 3,000 young people in the UK affected by Covid-19, and the subsequent issues that have emerged in their lives and communities. Our transformational programme harnesses the powerful near-peer experience that takes place between university students aged 18-24 and young people aged 13-16. University students will receive training to deliver online interactive wellbeing workshops, that build resilience and empower young people to make positive change.

Challenge

The prevalent narrative that Covid-19 has ruined an entire generation's future prospects is damaging young people's mental health and wellbeing, and is also untrue! In a recent survey conducted by YoungMinds, 67% of young people believed that the pandemic will have a long-term negative effect on their mental health. This project will provide wellbeing support for 3,000 UK youth, reclaiming 'Generation Covid' as 'Generation Change' because empowered young people can be a positive force.

Solution

University students will receive training to deliver online workshops to young people, focusing on boosting self-esteem, recognising self-worth, coping with change, envisioning the future and creating positive pathways to achieving goals. The workshops will provide 'mutual healing' opportunities, benefitting both university students aged 18-24 and young people aged 13-16. There will also be the opportunity to connect young people from different groups as part of a wider support network.

Long-Term Impact

The project will train 60 university students to deliver wellbeing workshops reaching 3,000 UK youth. University students will develop their facilitation, leadership and other transferable skills to help them with the next stage of their life, and can use this experience to contribute towards their higher education accreditation. Young people will discuss their concerns in a brave and safe space, and develop skills to cope with change and make positive change in their lives and in the world.
