Wellbeing worker programme

Funding provided by the Prudence Trust has enabled Blackburn, Croydon, Oldham and Wigan Youth Zone to run the Wellbeing Worker programme. The Youth Zones have employed Wellbeing Workers on a part time basis to offer vital one-on-one mental health support.  

These one-on-one conversations provide a fuller picture of a young person’s situation. Vulnerable young people who need it most develop tailored plans, often with multiple layers of support, with their dedicated youth worker and are supported to work through them. 

The wellbeing worker programme: 

  • Provides funding for 2 part time Wellbeing Youth Workers who will be on session solely available for youth work conversations through 1-2-1s with 11-25 year olds. 
  • Through these 1-2-1s they will build relationships, provide wellbeing support, triage and support young people to transition into specific universal/targeted activities as appropriate within the YZ or with specialist services/partners.
  • Enables a Youth Worker to fully understand the needs of the individual members and provide important pathways of support for them.
  • Helps to fully understand the needs across the membership to plan the activities based on needs for each Youth Zone.
