YMCA Norwich Anti-Bullying project, NR3 and NR5

4th November 2019

YMCA are running an anti-bullying project in NR3 and NR5 for Young People aged between 11-19 (or up to 25 with additional learning needs).

YMCA hold weekly Support Groups 5-7pm fortnightly between YMCA 7, Waldegrave (NR5) and Catton Grove Community Centre (NR3) where they offer support and guidance around bullying in group or 1-1 activities as well as a chill out space, games and consoles and refreshments. They offer practical group or 1-1 therapeutic resources such as: turning negativity into positive, goal setting, coping mechanisms.

As part of the project, they also offer weekly school Peer Mentoring where they do an 8-week program at local high schools setting up an Anti-Bullying Group where the students complete an accredited ASDAN Peer Mentoring course. The group then becomes student-led when they have completed the course as ‘Anti-Bullying Ambassadors’ at their school. They could also run Peer Mentoring at other charities, churches or groups.
