Worth-it is the UK’s leading provider of Positive Education. We prevent mental health problems and support children and young people to flourish.
Worth-it is a social enterprise dedicated to creating real change and preventing mental health problems developing.
We know this is a big aim and what started out as direct work with children and young people has now grown to encompass training and workforce development, resourse and toolkit development and whole school and community approaches to developing resilience and wellbeing.
Worth-it was founded in 2011 with the aim to apply evidence based approaches of coaching psychology and positive psychology to create real change and prevent mental health problems. This developled into our innovative approach to early intervention and prevention through improving wellbeing and developing positive mental health.
We are passionate about creating sustainable social impact. The positive impact of our approach is clear and something we are very proud of. Through working directly with young people listening to them and providing targeted support to meet their needs we have reduced mental health problems. Due to this success, we developed our approach into professional development programme, resource toolkits, early intervention package and training opportunities for the children’s workforce and whole school approaches to mental health.
We want the impact of our work to continue to grow, benefiting as many children and young people as possible to gain skills that improve resilience and wellbeing. We have a focus on collaboration with partner organisations. We work with partners to develop early intervention programmes that support the development of positive mental health and wellbeing in children and young people in a range of complimentary sectors, such as education, community, health, criminal justice and employability.
Demonstrating a clear track record of how our way of working benefits children and young people has led to being funded and commissioned by a range of organisations. These include Local Authorities, NHS Trusts, CCG’s, Third Sector Organisations, Schools and Multi Academy Trusts. We won the Big Venture Challenge in 2014, award for Social Enterprise, have secured social investment from Key Fund and have been awarded grant funding from Children in Need and Big Lottery to name a few.
