Some of our recent highlights:
Art and Digital Social Action Campaign Project
In April, we ran a 1 day art and digital social action campaign project for local young people aged 18-25 where they created campaign content around voting in the local elections. During the day they got to learn and share why voting is important, what you need to vote and how to vote.
The content they created was shared across social media, newsletters, on Reading Buses, outside Reading Train Station and by Reading Borough Council!
Body Image Workshops- Reading Girls
Our Projects Coordinator, Abbie, and a No5 counsellor recently delivered 4 Body Image Workshops to the Year 9’s at Reading Girls. The students thoroughly enjoyed the workshops and also found it informative and useful!
“It was very good and I learnt to be kind to myself”
Outreach and Preventative Work
At No5 we are constantly striving to develop new outreach programmes to deliver mental health messages, education and resources directly to young people in our community.
Central to this objective is our innovative series of Mental Health Workshops for schools, colleges and young people’s groups in Reading, created with the aim to educate, support and build self-awareness in young people around issues they face today. Our workshops are developed and delivered in collaboration with our Young Ambassadors.
We also offer counselling services and workshops in secondary schools in the local area
