Exam Season

Rebekah K Bacon | 20th May 2019

Oh no. It’s everyone’s least favourite season of the year, back again to torment us. I am yet to meet someone who enjoys the thrill of going into an exam hall and trying to get down all their knowledge and understanding of a subject in 1-2 hours. Yet for me, equally as bad is coming out to find your friends discussing answers and realising what yo

Being Part of the Phase Team...

Hannah Dengate | 17th January 2019

You are meant to thrive, not just survive. On Monday 3rd September 2018 I started working for a charity based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, called Phase as their Wellbeing Lead.

XLP is a youth work charity working with young people struggling with a range of

Influences

Kieran Murphy | 4th November 2017

Influence is something that we all have, maybe a little, maybe a lot, but you still have some. Influence is something I am very passionate about, you have the ability to change and impact the life of those around you either for the better or the worse. Let’s assume it’s for the better ;) Martin Luther King Jr, Graham, Granddad, Tim & Richard t

Holding Nothing Back - banter and biscuits!

Helen Bainbridge | 20th January 2017

It’s my turn to talk about what has been happening recently, so I thought I’d fill you all in on developments at Holding Nothing Back. It’s been an exciting few months, and there’s more in store this term. At the end of last term, we had a Christmas party. It was great fun – we had a photo booth, an appearance from Father Christmas, some old schoo

Growing up with Phase

Molly Rackham | 10th November 2016

I have known and had connections with Phase for the last 6 years through ‘It’s your move’ workshops, Holding Nothing back, Time trek, school assemblies, Westbrook, after school club and so much more. But in this last year I have been working much more closely with the team. In September 2015 I became the Phase Publicity Intern (which is a very fan

Love Always Hopes

Kieran Murphy | 30th August 2016

Love Always Hopes wristbands are in memory of Mary Bacon who sadly died suddenly in May 2016. Mary was heavily involved with Phase in a variety of ways, from helping at Time Trek to being a young leader at our Holding Nothing Back group at Hitchin Girls' School.

My year with Phase

Bethany Murray | 2nd August 2016

This year I have been working with Phase as the 'Self-harm Support Intern' and what an exciting year it has been. I've seen Phase achieve so much and am excited about the future of the charity which I will continue to support and be involved with, just perhaps from more of a distance as my next three years will be spent up north at Newcastle Univer

Holding Nothing Back

Molly Rackham | 25th February 2016

Since starting out at Hitchin Girls' School we have always gone to the Holding Nothing Back lunchtime group. It was always really nice to see familiar faces each week especially when there are another 1000 students who are all older and taller than you. Holding Nothing Back allows us to explore our faith not only on a Sunday. It's such a relaxed an

BBQ brings home the bacon!

Kieran Murphy | 22nd September 2015

A barbeque organised by Phase partners earlier in the summer raised the grand sum of £500 for the new self-harm project. Around 30 friends came along to the fundraising event, held at the home of Judith and Les Ebdon on 12 June. They were treated to a fantastic BBQ feast, followed by a short presentation on the vision and aims of the latest Phase
