The Meadow Well Teenage | Community Links & Aspirations Programme
Funded by the National Lottery Awards for All Community Fund, we successfully delivered a twelve-week early intervention programme for ten Year 9 girls, selected by the Head of Year, at Norham High School. Our Wellbeing Programme has helped the girls learn how to build better friendships, have a better understanding of how others are feeling and become integral members of the local Meadow Well Community.
To help engage students in their local community, Sarah McDonald, from Meadow Well Connected, delivered a talk on how our young people can reconnect with their community and the volunteering opportunities available outside of school. Our young people now have the opportunity to support these initiatives as future volunteers themselves.
In order to develop their aspirations and cultural experiences, we took the group on a residential visit to London. Many of the young people had never been on a train, never been to London, and never been to the theatre before, so they found the whole trip a revelation. London allowed the young people to develop more confidence in social situations, and many of them pushed themselves out of their comfort zone.

“My favourite part was making new friends and extending my friendship circle with people I am not usually with.”
