hatch (mental health & wellbeing support for young people)
hatch is a young person’s mental health service providing a range of 1-1 and small group interventions that improve emotional wellbeing. We support young people through online CBT and skills based programmes, provide evening opportunities for young people to learn therapeutic strategies and fantastic school holiday enrichment activities. Please check out our dedicated hatch website here.
We have been supporting young carers in Wirral for over 6 years providing school holiday respite services to give young carers the opportunity to build friendships with other young people with shared experience whilst developing skills that they can transfer to other areas within their lives such as school, at home or in the community. It is amazing to see the confidence grow in these young people throughout our programme and the friendships they develop.

Personal development programmes
We deliver a range of personal development activity programmes throughout the year for children and young people who are either at risk of offending or have been victims of crime. These programmes are tailored to suit the needs of the young people taking part and the local need at the present time. We utilise our partnerships with local activity providers to provide amazing opportunities across a range of alternative sports that challenge young people and their comfort zones whilst having fun in the process. Our staff are highly experienced at helping young people to recognise their strengths and areas for development and provide support to make positive changes.
