Tender is lucky enough to currently receive funding from Children in Need, Esmee Fairbairn, John Lyons, City Bridge and Hackney Council to deliver Healthy Relationships projects to young people across London.
As these projects are funded, participant youth settings can receive projects of up to 12 hours at no cost to the setting. Take a look at the current youth ambassador opportunities listed below to see if one of these projects may be suitable for your youth setting.
A Place for Everyone is a 2 year Hackney funded project. Tender will work with 15 vulnerable young people in 4 youth settings in Hackney per year to enable them to identify characteristics of an unhealthy relationship and how and where to seek support. They will then create campaigns in their communities and disseminate them to their peers. Staff from the settings will also have the opportunity to receive free training.
Additionally, 2 young people from each setting will also receive training from professionals in Peer Mentoring and Youth Facilitation which is an OCN Level 2 accredited course at the end of the second year.
For more information about the OCN training go to the Youth Engagement Page.
