Established in 2011 as a social enterprise, Worth-it were funded by Children In Need to deliver it’s first young people’s programme. Collaborating with young people and listening to challenges they faced enabled us to design and create an engaging programme to meet their needs.
Our vision is to empower both children and adults to learn accessible, practical skills and strategies to help promote resilience and prevent mental health problems.
To date, we have…
- developed whole school approaches to mental health with 25 primary and secondary schools, positively impacting on all staff and pupils mental health and wellbeing.
- worked with over 150 schools and organisations across the UK.
- trained 1900 practitioners to support children and young people to develop resilience, emotional health and mental wellbeing.
- supported over 1000 children and young people, learn strategies that help prevent mental health problems.
We operate on a results-focused basis and regularly publish reports on our social impact. Our courses and trainings are shaped by the young people themselves, and we regularly conduct focus groups to ensure our content is relevant and applicable for our target audience. In addition, we’ve previously won Unltd’s Big Venture Challenge Award and currently rank number one for the sector of Education and Youth on the SE100 social enterprise index 2014-15.
