The Flourish Project Update – April 2020
We believe for “BIG things to take place” – and are excited to be on a journey to see transformation happen in South Wales improving children’s emotional and mental wellbeing.
It was great to be in South Wales at the end of February where we got to share the vision for the project, which is to see “100,000 children’s lives impacted in a positive way over the next 10 years”.
At the Vision morning, we were really encouraged to meet representatives from Social Services, the local Foodbank, youth workers, children’s workers, church leaders and volunteers, who all came along to hear how they can partner with us to see this vision rolled out across the whole of South Wales.
During the next eight months, we are going to be working intensively alongside Elevate Church to see the Flourish project implemented and rolled out – initially into ten schools.
Forty facilitators will be trained – including teaching assistants, teachers, children’s and youth workers, grandparents, parents, local community volunteers and charity workers. Following the training, the impact and difference made to children, young people and their families are going to be huge.
We are excited that throughout 2020 we will also be training sixty Champions in this region! A Champion is someone who can come alongside a child/young person, and be that person’s Champion through their actions and life-giving words.
Feeling stirred? You should be! Watch this space!!
