What we do for the community

All the work we do at Phase is focused on our three key aims: Promote, Prevent and Support. We place the wellbeing of all young people at the heart of everything we do.

At Phase, we're passionate about raising awareness of the vital role that wellbeing and resilience play in shaping young lives. We collaborate closely with local schools, engaging in meaningful conversations about the essence of wellbeing, its defining characteristics, and the factors that can either support or hinder it. This serves as the bedrock of our work, fostering strong relationships with young people, schools, parents, churches, and organisations to create a positive impact on their lives.

Our Promote work is for all!

Our PROMOTE work is designed to benefit all young people aged 5 to 18, encompassing a wide range of dynamic programs in primary and secondary schools. Within these educational settings, our Promote initiatives take shape through whole-school activities and year-group-specific engagements.

Through our diverse range of workshops, short courses, assemblies, and one-off sessions, we delve into essential topics that shape young minds. From emotional wellbeing and managing transitions to resilience, mental health, and the power of choices, our programs cover an array of crucial areas.

To learn more about our impactful PROMOTE work, reach out to Wellbeing Lead at wellbeing@phase-hitchin.org. They will be delighted to provide you with further insights and answer any questions you may have.

Preventing challenges, building resilience

At Phase, we are committed to preventing specific issues from taking root in the lives of young people. We engage in open discussions about potential challenges, equipping them with the knowledge and tools to identify, address, and prevent these issues. Our goal is to empower young individuals to understand why these challenges may arise, recognize them in themselves or others, take action, and seek the support they need.

Who is this for?

Our Prevent initiative is tailored to young people, starting from year 5 and extending up to year 13. We engage with whole year groups, class settings, and smaller groups to deliver impactful interventions.

Through engaging assemblies, thought-provoking lessons, and collaborative group work, we delve into critical issues that young people may face. Our focus areas include breaking stigma, managing anxiety and exam stress, navigating self-harm, and addressing various mental health concerns. By providing education, guidance, and a safe space for discussion, we empower young individuals to take control of their own wellbeing.

Empowering young minds through targeted support

At Phase, we provide tailored support to young people facing difficulties. We understand that sometimes challenges can arise quickly, and our support work is designed to address these needs promptly. Our goal is to help young individuals regain their footing, overcome obstacles, and unleash their full potential.

Who is this for?

Currently, our support work focuses on secondary school-aged young people. However, we are actively developing additional support programs, so stay tuned for updates.

Our support takes place through personalised 1:1 mentoring or in small group settings. In our current small group interventions, we address issues such as self-harm, anxiety, anger, and low self-esteem. These 8-week CBT-based courses empower young individuals with essential skills. Additionally, we provide ongoing support through The Studio, an after-school art-based drop-in program available to any young person who has completed our support programs.
