Children and young people
Pathways to Wellness will offer six to twelve weeks of support from an Emotional Wellbeing Practitioner. They will work with children and young people to identify their issues, put in a plan of action and work on achieving their goals. They will hold regular reviews to ensure positive progression and work with children and young people to assess the right level of support. They will also work with the outreach team towards the end of the intervention to identify suitable opportunities in the community for children and young people based on their needs, interests and aspirations. There is a small resource to ensure that children and young people are not prevented from taking part in community activities due to inability to pay.
We will work with community groups to ensure they know there is support available for children and young people they work with through the project and support them in keeping children and young people in community activities through individual advice and support and formal training and information sessions.
