Staying Connected @ Youth Action Alliance


Add to shortlist

Staying Connected provides vital one-to-one support for young people aged 11 - 19 years and families, facing multiple challenges, experiencing crisis and hardship.

This engagement is via face to face, online via Zoom and emails, or on mobile phones using messages and telephone calls, to maintain contact with them, talk about how they are feeling and to provide advice, mentoring and signposting to additional support services.

We provide, where necessary, access to clothing, food packages and essential items.

This project aims to: 

  • Combat loneliness and isolation

  • Improve positive outlook by providing something to look forward to

  • Improve confidence and self-esteem

  • Increase happiness and positivity

  • Increase recognition, understanding and coping mechanisms for mental health and well-being

  • Improve communication skills

  • Signpost to additional support services

  • Provide trips and positive activities
