BucksConnected: A Wellbeing project for Young People
Published: 05 February 2019
What is Bucksconnected
Bucksconnected is a Youth Service project which helps 11 to 19 year olds(up to 25 years with a disability) develop emotional resilience, social and independence skills. The small group work project explores issues such as emotional intelligence and resilience, identity, relationships, risky behaviours, skills for independence and dealing with setbacks and allows young people to learn from their peers, gain support from a positive peer group, and learn the skills needed to transition into adulthood successfully.
Where do they meet
Bucksconnected runs on a weekly basis in:
Wycombe on Wednesdays 6pm to 8pm at the Roundhouse (near the Swan Theatre) and
Aylesbury on Tuesdays 6pm to 8pm at YouthSpace Aylesbury which is on the site of the Grange School.
“It boosted my confidence and made me feel like I am something, rather just listening to what others said to me about being useless” (Young Person)
“A massive increase in confidence, higher self-esteem and is now able to make friends and cope with social situations.” (Parent)
If you work with an 11 to 19 year old who you may think would benefit from attending Bucksconnected, please contact the Youth Service on 01296 383236. Young people are accepted onto the project via a referral basis.
