Equipping young people to flourish and be the best that they can be.

Why we do what we do

The Flourish Project

The purpose of the project is to equip young people to develop healthy self-esteem, mental and emotional wellbeingWe do this by helping young people to develop a growth mindset, creating helpful thinking patterns and enabling the young person to start to understand their potential, realizing future aspirations and set goals for the future.

The Need

Below are some statistics highlighting the needs nationally:

  • Government statistics for the UK in 2017– revealed deterioration in the nation’s mental and emotional wellbeing.
  • 1 in 10 children is affected by mental health (10% of children and young people aged 5-16 years old have clinically diagnosable mental problems).
  • Childline recorded a 9% increase in the number of children contacting them due to low-self esteem.
  • Other evidence suggests that children with low self-esteem are more likely to self-harm, have suicidal thoughts and to make bad life choices. Compared to young people that have high self-esteem.

Our Outcomes

Since the project starting Flourish has worked with over 370 young people in 8 different schools.

We have seen an average increase in the following area.

  • Self-esteem average increase of 20%
  • Mental well-being average increase of 16%
  • Happiness average increase of 14%

These statistics are the current average across all the programs completed to date. The information was captured using recognized evaluation tools, which measure young person self-esteem, mental wellbeing, and happiness at the start and end of a programme. The results reveal that the Flourish project is making a difference in the lives of young people!
