Colchester United's Football in the Community, (CUFITC), are providing Tendring students with 1-2-1 mentoring when they need it most, to support their mental health.
The aim of the 1-2-1 programme is to provide additional support to young people and organisations working with young people in the Tendring district to help them overcome barriers and to promote positive engagement, behaviour and connectivity to their community.
Our staff will be used as mentors and role models for young people to guide them into making positive choices to increase their levels of attainment, boost confidence and support positive aspirations and future planning.
Our project will be tailored to the young people that we come into contact with, usually lasting six weeks, we will be working in tandem with partners and this will be especially true when it comes to locations of delivery as we will utilise different venues and facilities based on our interventions and desired effects on the participants.
We will use our experience from current enrichment programmes and community work around numerous issues to inform when advising the young people and helping signpost them as part of their onward journey post Colchester United Football In The Community engagement.
