If you are a youth worker or work with young people, this wellbeing hub has been developed with your needs in mind
We believe that if you care for those providing support, those that they care for will also reap the rewards
Mindfulness and meditation are invaluable tools that help maintain and support mental wellbeing, so we’ve collected our ‘building blocks for wellbeing’ content here for you to access when and as you need!
The Meditation Sessions
Regain a sense of wellbeing and balance, and renew your passion and energy for your work with young people
The Meditation Sessions are a short 12 step meditation journey we’ve developed for you in partnership with The Sanctuary, that you can join from the comfort of your working space in your own time. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday over four weeks, a short meditation will be sent to your inbox.
SoulSpace: wellbeing seminars
Ignite your best version of yourself
Gerry Hussey of SoulSpace has over 20 years’ experience building high performance teams and individuals within organisations. His approach is one of honesty, simplicity and authenticity.
Through this mini-series of seminars developed for youth workers with the NYCI National Youth Health Programme, Gerry will support you to strip away learned behaviours and thinking patterns; to unclutter, clarify and overcome both internal and external obstacles and challenges, and to ignite the best version of yourself from a complete Mind, Body and Spirit perspective.
Awakening Your Inner Champion
An empowering experience that focuses on raising consciousness, awakening inner potential, igniting greater health and performance in an integrative and holistic way by focussing on Mind, Body and Spirit.
Execute: How Do We Create A Daily/Weekly Code That Allows Us To Proactively Manifest The Life That We Dream Of
This will take you through an exciting and innovative program that has been designed to help people reignite passion, spirit, imagination, inner resilience and creativity.
Performing Beyond the Comfort Zone and Building Inner Resilience
This will assist you in revitalising and maintaining an energised, focused, resilient and high performing team that will rise and thrive, not only in this challenging period but in the time far beyond.
Building blocks for wellbeing
Short, timely supports you can use at a moment that suits you
The original series for youth workers that started it all. If you work with young people ‘Building Blocks for Wellbeing’ provides you with support through mindfulness practices and activities. Below you can access short, timely supports you can use at a moment that suits you.
The NYCI National Youth Health Programme (NYHP) in partnership with The Sanctuary initially developed these invaluable tools that help maintain and support mental wellbeing for those working on the frontlines of society, specially to those providing support to young people, at the outset of the Covid-19 pandemic. We are now delighted to give you access to them throughout this unprecedented time, and long after Covid-19.
How is the you in youth work?
Bespoke session for your organisation
This is a supportive online space which offers you the opportunity to stop for a moment and take stock – to give you a little time to reflect on how you are in all of this – the positives, the challenges, how you are supporting yourself and being supported – and what you would like in terms of support.
