Workshops are short group work sessions based around a particular shared interest/need of the participants. The sessions are designed to be creative and fun in order to engage the young people with learning in a stimulating environment. Some workshops are discussion based whereas others feature a much more practical element. The sessions encourage independence and increased responsibility of self and others and inspire self-belief and motivation. They form an effective catalyst to communication, as well as to build confidence and encourage participation in other areas.

Workshops are usually delivered at the Krunch youth centre. The referring agency will be notified of any off site activity.

A professional and confidential approach is adhered to including feedback reports.

Workshops can form part of a tailor made approach to an individual tying in with other Krunch services, such as the Personal Development Programme or mentoring.

A key worker can be assigned to support participants whilst attending and provide feedback where appropriate

Accreditation available.
