Organisation Category: Children and young people
We are a collective run for the youth by the youth.
We host safe environments for 11-17 year-olds to socialise and belong.
We empower our ‘Blenders’ by giving them ownership of the collective itself and enabling them to learn to serve each other, rather than themselves.
Under adult supervision, they collect weekly subscriptions, manage registrations and banking, and decide how money is spent on for example, activities and refreshments.
We have recently conceived the Worry Walk project (worrywalk.org) as a vehicle for breaking down barriers associated with being open and honest about mental health and helping people of all ages and walks of life share their worries in an open and non-judgmental way.
