Just a quick update from us here at Ynot Aspire.  We’ve updated the site a little to give you some new information about our Prevention and Early Intervention project around young people’s mental health and well-being Your Voice and the changes that we’re making to our school’s workshops from September.  It’s still a work in progress but we’re working closely with partners and our young people’s focus group to try and make sure we get it right from all the information you’ve shared with us.  We’re working hard to try and bring live web-chat to the site later this year as this was an idea shared by many through our consultation.

We have just finished our latest round of volunteer training so we have some new mentors almost ready to go.  They will be offering one-to-one sessions with any young person who has support needs that would benefit from a mentor through our Your Space project and some of them will also be helping us deliver the school’s input.

We’ve been working with the Prince’s Trust on a new Homeless Awareness session that we’ll be delivering to schools from September and have just teamed up with a film maker to run a project over summer to create some videos and media that we can use at part of the sessions.

Following on from your feedback from the Ynot Talk About It event, Paula has been busy creating a newsletter that we will get out to you soon with more information.

We’re very excited about the new projects and can’t wait to roll them out soon.
