Established in 2011 as a social enterprise, Worth-it were initially funded by local grants and Children in Need to develop and deliver early intervention programmes for young people. Collaborating with young people and listening to challenges they faced enabled us to create and deliver engaging interventions that meet their needs, resulting in many positive outcomes that contribute to the prevention of mental health problems.
We have now successfully worked with over 1000 children and young people through our early intervention programmes and packages of support.
Developing our unique approach led us to providing training and development opportunities to the children and young people’s workforce. We have created a range of training and coaching options for practitioners to develop skills to support children and young people in our unique approach to early intervention and prevention.
We have now trained 1900 practitioners to support children and young people to develop resilience, emotional health and mental wellbeing.
We have worked with over 150 schools, providing targeted interventions for children and young people, staff training and coaching within schools.
Our approach has now evolved into working within the whole school system. We have developed and delivered a ground breaking whole school approach to mental health. We have delivered this programme with 25 primary and secondary schools, positively impacting on all staff and pupil’s mental health and wellbeing.
The resulting impact of our workforce development and whole school programme has meant our approach to early intervention has positively impacted over 40,000 children and young people in the last 3 years.
