ReachOut

About our Reach Out Project

Funded by The Co-Op Foundation, Youth Cymru will be working with young people  who are or at risk of loneliness and isolation. We will work with hubs across Wales to develop and deliver loneliness workshops and toolkit along with social action projects for young people to gain a better understanding of loneliness, enhance and deepen self-confidence, self-efficacy and enable a sense of external agency, empowering and supporting them to experience community cohesion and connections.

ReachOut Toolkit

Over the past year, the ReachOut project has worked with 3 hubs across Wales to develop and deliver loneliness workshops. From this, the project enabled young people to create a toolkit and lead social action projects which allowed them to gain a better understanding of loneliness, enhance self confidence, deepen self-efficacy and enable a sense of external agency, empowering and supporting them to experience community cohesion and connections.

Inside the toolkit 

You will find activities and resources to help, inspire, and motivate young people who may be at risk of/ want to help other young people suffering from effects of loneliness and social exclusion.
At the back of the toolkit you will have access to a Social Action Toolkit. This will assist young people in planning and carrying out their own Loneliness Outreach Project, to help tackle loneliness in their communities.
