Young Solutions and Covid-19 Measures

Further to the emerging Coronavirus situation, we just wish to reassure our Members and those who need us that we are still here for you! We are mainly working from home and remain open for phone calls, emails, zoom, skype, etc., but we not accepting visitors into the office at the moment.

Our email addresses and mobile phone numbers are as follows:

  mobile: 07595 099861

  mobile: 07595 099862

DBS Checks for our Members – Urgent checks for new staff/volunteers may be carried out.  Identity document checks can be undertaken using video link or photos.  Please contact us and we will respond to requests on a case by case basis.

Newsletter and E-Bulletins – We are still sending out our weekly e-bulletins and the monthly newsletter has been increased to 2 issues per month for the foreseeable future, thanks to funding from the Worcestershire Community Foundation.

If you have any news, or events that have been postponed or are taking place later in the year, we can promote these for you. Why not send us a few paragraphs and pictures about what your youth organisation has been doing recently and we can share this with others?

Seek and Reach Project –  Our team are working to reach out and offer support to young people in need.  Are you a young person aged 16-24 living in Worcestershire, or do you know a young person, who needs someone to help them with finding employment, training or the right college course? It could be you need some help and advice about relationships with family or friends? You might want to build your confidence and self esteem so you can fulfil your potential? Our Key Workers will support you 1:1 with practical and emotional support.  Contact Sarah Whitehead above.

Tryangle Awards 2020 –  The Tryangle Awards Evening, which was to be held in March 2020, has been postponed. We hope to now hold it as part of our Annual General Meeting on Thursday 8th October 2020 at Worcester Bosch (subject to government restrictions).

Training – Unfortunately we had to cancel two first aid courses we had planned for March 2020.  Please be assured we will re-organise these once the situation is clearer in the coming months.  If you require other training for your staff or volunteers, eg Safeguarding, CSE Awareness, Mental Health First Aid, etc. then please let us know how many people you have to assist with planning for more courses, hopefully starting in September 2020.
