Programmes for Youth

The Hummingbird Project was funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation to design and deliver emotional resilience programmes for young people from the ages of eight to twenty-four. These sessions were co-designed with the different age groups with lived-experience at its core to ensure that each young participant created resilience tool-kits that were relevant and sustainable for them. Since its development, we have delivered this programme with a number of youth groups from different backgrounds and abilities. To date, we have worked with groups from Kinship Care, the NOW group, Orchardville Society, GroundWorks NI, Supporting Communities and most recently have launched a year-long project as lead partner for the PwC Challenge.
