The project is a pilot and the first of its kind devised by a consortium of five partners.

They intend to use a unique blend of youth work, counselling and CBT interventions to prevent escalation of poor mental health in young people. The programme will be flexible to the needs of young people and therefore the staff they are looking to attract to this new venture would need to have a similar outlook to their work pattern.

Although the project is only funded for one year through Aspiring Communities Fund it is their ambition if successful, to use robust evaluation information to approach other funders to extend the life of the project.
