Torus Foundation’s Getting Social | Wellbeing Programme for Young People

Torus Foundation’s Getting Social Programme, funded by NHS Charities Together and in partnership with Alder Hey and Positive Futures, is a supportive, young person-centred programme, that is designed to improve the mental wellbeing of young people.

Organised by targeted youth workers, the programme offers 10 weeks of social activities, one to one sessions and peer support to young people aged 11 – 18 years old.

Dedicated youth workers will facilitate young people’s access to Sports, Digital, Creative Arts and/or Outdoor activities.

The primary aim is to reduce the number of young people needing NHS interventions, by offering Getting Social as either an interim, supportive, or alternative form of support. One of the ways they hope to do this is through early intervention, which is where you come in!

If you are supporting or working with young people that are struggling with their mental wellbeing, it may be worth considering a referral to Getting Social!

Participants must live in Liverpool to be eligible for a referral and will be supported at either Fire Fit Hub (South Liverpool) or Positive Futures (North Liverpool), depending on the ward that they live.

You can refer any young person within the age range that is struggling with their wellbeing and they particularly encourage those working within BAME communities to consider referring.
