For small charity week, we wanted to highlight that being small doesn’t mean you can’t have a big impact! Below are some of the ways we have had an impact on local young people and their mental health!
During the last year (2021-22), we supported 688 young people by delivering 6108 counselling sessions! The big impact of this is what those young people say themselves:
“No5 has given me my life back”
“I’ve been able to talk about all my problems with someone that’s there for me”
“Got a bit of hope, saved my relationship, looking after myself more and I’m less judgemental of myself”
Outreach Work and Projects
We offer a series of 6 mental health workshops, created by our Young Ambassadors and delivered by 2 young lived experienced leaders, to local schools for free. So far this school year, we have already supported 144 young people across 7 sessions!
“I enjoyed learning about the workshop leaders’ personal story because it made me feel not alone”
“I enjoyed the activity, we did a lot about activities on how to relieve our stress in different ways”
“[we learnt] about how we can get help and its okay to feel like you are not ok”
During the May half term we also supported 8 young people currently on our waiting list through our Creative Art Wellbeing Project. They they got to co-create a mural for the No5 waiting room, as well as explore different creative wellbeing activities. 42% felt the workshops definitely helped them, with the further 58% feeling they may have helped.
“I felt less anxious talking to people and made friends”
“I have felt more creative and listened to”
