About Project

'Together We Thrive' Programme offers our young people aged 10 - 25 years with complex hidden challenges, a staged progression out of isolation and back into society. The participants journey through the programme is organic and is individually created dependent on their need. The participant may use all or just a few of the programme’s services on their journey. The Family Support Team work alongside the wellbeing and clinical teams to welcome, support and track an individual’s journey and progress through the programme.

The Stages within the Programme:

Together Outreach:

Together Outreach - offers in-house/in-school support to young people who are isolated through mental health challenges. These challenges show themselves through increased isolation, school refusal, agoraphobia, obsessive compulsive tendencies. This At Home support programme is designed to establish a wellbeing relationship, connection and a programme of support. Arts For Life Project's wellbeing practitioners and clinical counselling team work together to create opportunities for out of home intervention.

This approach benefits the young person and family through:

  • The ability to access vulnerable young people who will not engage with services outside of the home
  • The ability to create a safe and nurturing space for the young person to build foundation blocks for change
  • The ability to provide opportunities for safe and supported change into the outside world

Together Inhouse: Clinical Therapeutic / Wellbeing

The Wellbeing and Clinical Team graduate Together Outreach participants into a Together Inhouse programme at the Arts for Life Project centre. They establish a safe and secure place for participants to access regularly whilst they continue their therapeutic journey back into society. A BACP registered clinical team are present to offer ongoing intervention for personal challenges, development, and independence growth.

This support will be individual either through therapeutic intervention or with the wellbeing team or a combination of both working alongside each other.

This approach benefits the young person and family through:

  • The ability to access activity outside of the home
  • The ability to develop and grow an understanding of internal safety for future activities outside of the home
  • The development of positive emotional resilience skills to begin their journey back into society

Together We Thrive: Mentor Support

On developing a safe place for external interaction outside of the home, the young person will be invited to transfer into the Together We Thrive Mentor Programme where they are supported by a Community Youth Worker or Volunteer Mentor. This support creates achievable activities within the community. Working together with their Mentor they will build on independent life skills such as going; interacting with peers; taking a bus or train; shopping; visiting the park; build skills for employment. By creating achievable activities and working together to build independence. This facilitates the young person to re-integrate back into society.

Outcomes:

This approach benefits the young person and family through:

  • Improve essential skills (such as social techniques, self-soothing, emotional flexibility) to use within their daily lives and assist in reducing isolation
  • Develop and improve positive relationships within their immediate family unit, their immediate surroundings and within their structured communities
  • Develop, Grow & Sustain strong self-belief to manage daily challenges no matter how confusing and pressured the outside world is.

Participants may access one or all of the programmes during their programme journey.

The programme runs for 12 months from acceptance date.
