Support: Loneliness

WaveLength

UK

WaveLength gives media technology to lonely people living in poverty. We believe that one of the best solutions is for people to connect with each other and spend time together. Loneliness affects millions of people across the UK. For people who are lonely, a simple radio or television can feel like a lifeline. We help people who have become lonely through lots of different circumstances. Some of these include: the death of a loved one; illness or injury; disability; homelessness; domestic abuse; becoming a refugee or moving away from friends and family. TV, radio can bring people together like nothing else. Even when there is no-one else around, they can be a friendly voice in an empty room and a window to the world. Every day we hear stories about how our technology is helping people overcome loneliness. We even have the research to prove it! So, if you know someone who needs our help, apply today. We want to hear from you.

Young Minds

UK

We are leading the movement to make sure every young person gets the mental health support they need, when they need it, no matter what. It takes courage to ask for help. But for many young people who do, the support they need just isn’t there. In the UK today, an estimated five children in every classroom has a mental health problem. A quarter of 17-year-old girls have self-harmed in the last year, while suicide remains the single biggest killer of boys and young men. But things can get better. We provide young people with tools to look after their mental health. We empower adults to be the best support they can be to the young people in their lives. And we give young people the space and confidence to get their voices heard and change the world we live in. Together, we can create a world where no young person feels alone with their mental health. Join our movement.

Our vision is delivered through three strands of work: Youth Work; Alternative Learning Provision and Enterprise; Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Support, as well as the arts and music running as common theme throughout.

  • Youth Work - Open Access Youth Work: A universal offer to young people across the county, enabling them to access a youth work curriculum that develops skills and increases involvement within their communities. Targeted Youth Work: This is the work we do with vulnerable young people, who have specific needs or characteristics requiring a focused response.  We identify and support young people, finding ways to strengthen their resilience and ability to bring about positive change.
  • Alternative Learning Provision and Enterprise: Our targeted or focused programmes, often for young people for whom mainstream education isn’t working.  Through working with us, young people can gain skills and accreditation to develop their economic and social wellbeing and future employability.

Your Mental Health

We all go through tough times, and when we do, taking care of #littlethings like talking about our problems, how we eat, how active we are, how connected we are to the people around us, can make a big difference to how we feel inside.
