Youth Links is our brand new youth group, and we have just released a completely FREE, fun and supportive summer programme for 11 -18 year olds in Southend, Rochford and Castle Point.
First launched in Westcliff earlier this year, Youth Links will take place weekly in Westcliff, Thundersley and Rochford, but over the summer the team have arranged some great activities to get local families involved with our work.
With 75% of mental health problems in adult life (excluding dementia) starting by the age of 18, we want to reach out to young people to help them learn positive coping strategies, talk openly about mental health, make friendships, and learn how to take care of themselves to build a better future. As such, we have arranged a series of taster sessions to offer local youths a chance to come along, meet the team, and find out more.
Youth Links has some very exciting plans for the new school year and this is a great time to be getting involved. The next event takes place in Priory Park, Southend, from 12pm – 3pm on Thursday 1st August, and is ideal for anyone aged 11-18 years old.
We also have an exciting Instagram Treasure Hunt and BBQ planned later in August. Join us from 12pm - 4pm on Monday 19th August at Growing Together Thundersley, or on Thursday 22nd August at Growing Together Rochford and be part of the fun!
