This Way Up


We are a listening ear to children and young people dealing with difficult life events like parental separation, divorce and bereavement. Due to huge demands on our service we need to increase the hours of our team leader who looks after all of our volunteers.

Our project helps teenagers reduce their anxiety by providing someone to talk to about their problems enabling them to concentrate more on their school work and get on better with their peers. Our team leader coordinates the volunteers and also meets with young people in groups and 1:1


We can reduce the waiting list for our services by increasing the hours that our team leader works. She can then give more time to the team and help recruit new volunteers. She can also increase the amount of time she spends meeting with young people who need to talk to someone.
