Time to Talk
Service has Local Offer
Are you betweeen 16 and 25? Unsure what you will do after lockdown? Would it help to talk to someone and develop your ideas?
If you are a young person with additional needs you can request support from this new project, Time to Talk. We can help build your confidence and plan what you want to do next.
About the project
One-to-one and group online sessions are adapted to suit you. They will include:
- chatting and getting to know each other
- hearing what matters to you and your hopes for the future
- doing activity sheets together to help you to make a plan (this is to help you identify your goals and can be shared with others afterwards if you wish)
To take part, you will need:
- internet access
- an iPad, laptop, or smartphone
- an email address
- a quiet space in your house to use for our sessions
If you need specific help to take part (e.g. shorter sessions so you can move around, an interpreter, or someone who knows you well to sit in) let us know when you complete the form. If online sessions are not possible for you, we may be able to provide support on the phone instead.
A document with more information and frequently asked questions, as well as a flyer for young people and a flyer for those requesting support on behalf of a young person can be found in related downloads on the website.
