I MATTER TOO!

We are very pleased to announce the award of a 5 year Big Lottery grant to enable us to develop and deliver an innovative and exciting new project called "I Matter Too".

The unique project will allow 11-17 year olds with a family member who has a substance misuse issue to take part in a 12-week programme which is starting in the Summer of 2017. There will be 4 courses per year for the next 5 years.

The programme, which will run alongside normal services, will give young people the chance to take part in a different activity each week to help them express themselves, build self-confidence and most importantly, have fun!

The project will be run from the Victoria Centre on Palk Road which is a wonderful community centre near the town centre in Wellingborough.

YOUR CHANCE TO GET INVOLVED

As part of our I MATTER TOO project we are looking to invite outside agencies in to run specialist sessions for our young people. These will be around specialist topics such as staying safe online, music, cooking, sport and various activities. This may involve agencies (such as sports or music agencies) bringing in specialist equipment.

We are looking for companies or individuals to bring in their expertise on one or more of these sessions for young people. Your help will allow us to enhance the I MATTER TOO project and give every child that takes part the opportunity to have new and exciting experiences that will broaden their horizons, boost confidence, lift their self-esteem, develop new skills and help them discover their hidden talents.

If you would like more information about the project, please contact us.

FSL YOUTH COMMITTEE

The FSL Youth Committee is run by young people who meet once a month at our Wellingborough office. The committee allows them the opportunity to give young people who are affected by someone else's substance use a voice and be a part of shaping the future of the charity.

If you would like to be involved you do not have to be an existing client of our services.
