Can you help fund our Reachout Youth groups?

In Kent, 50% of lifetime mental illness (except dementia) begins by the age of 14 and 75% begins by the age of 24.

Our Reachout youth groups deliver free, confidential and person-centred support to young people aged 12-19 years old. Last year alone we supported 60 young people in West Kent, with low self-confidence and limited social support networks outside of their immediate family.

Young people face many challenges, including broken family relationships, stress about relationships and exams, bereavement, drug and alcohol abuse, anxiety, depression, PTSD, self-harming and more. Our qualified & experienced staff are there to offer support and encouragement on each individual's journey towards better emotional wellbeing.

Adapting our services

Reachout Youth is not able to offer face to face services at the present time, however, this is a time where support is needed more than ever. That's why we have adapted our service to move online and our groups now involve:

1. Weekly virtual peer support groups
2. One-to-one telephone support and WhatsApp messaging support.
3. Weekly support packs, including tips for managing their wellbeing.

Can you donate to our Reachout Youth groups & support young people with their emotional wellbeing?

We are raising £4000, so we can give young people:

  • the tools to learn different approaches to conflict scenarios, like bullying,
  • how to stay calm and connected while self-isolating,
  • ways to plan their days and feel productive in this scary time 
  • a safe space to talk through any issues and concerns.

Your donation will help us help young people in Kent to receive support for their mental and emotional wellbeing through life, whatever the challenges.

Thank you for donating.
