The Right Here project is putting on a new activity called Walk and Talk.

The activity will be group walks with 6 young people (16-25) at a time, who have been experiencing social isolation and challenges with meeting new people or being in groups. Each participant will initially meet 1:1 with a counsellor to discuss their feelings about the walk and any barriers, doubts, fears etc which they might be experiencing. On the day of the walk itself, the 6 participants will be accompanied by the two counsellors who have been meeting the participants 1:1, who will offer support along the way, as well as a youth worker (and a volunteer assistant) who will lead the walk, including facilitating some ice breaking and team building games. A day or two after the walk, the participants will meet with one of the counsellors again 1-1 to talk about how the day went for them. A few days after that, the group of participants will meet again as a group for some facilitated reflection on their experiences of the walk and meeting each other. Read the rest of this entry »
