HELP US HELP MORE
VULNERABLE CHILDREN
GIVING EXCLUDED YOUNG PEOPLE A CHANCE TO SHINE
We have set a target of £20,000 in 2018 which would provide 200 1-1 counselling sessions in specialist services throughout the UK to help children who have been victims of sexual exploitation deal with the trauma they have experienced. Giving these children a chance to move forward, regain their self-esteem and get their life back.
HOW DOES BARNARDO’S HELP
As well as helping young people to gain qualifications (GCSE equivalents) and help them get into Further Education college, employment, and apprenticeships (our success rate is around 90%), the Barnardo’s workers help our young people develop their personal social skills, and grow their self-esteem. They provide these young people with the vital counselling and emotional support they need to deal with their complex and often traumatic backgrounds and complicated lives. They liaise with other professionals on behalf of our young people, working with schools and families to improve support networks, which are vital to ensuring continued progression and sticking with goals. It’s not just qualifications, we help them come to terms with their issues and help them cope and stay the course.
You can make a Difference
We are aiming to raise £20,000 for Barnardo’s year which would put 20 young people through the ‘construction skills course’ at the HUB and help them into employment. By buying raffle tickets at our event you can help us make a real difference to some young people lives.
