Time to Talk

'Time to Talk' is a project funded for six months by the National Lottery Community Fund.

The project is for young people aged 16 and 25 with additional needs who are unsure what to do after lockdown and would like to talk to someone and develop ideas. 'Time to Talk' can help build your young person's confidence and plan what to do next.

The project offers young people free, strength-based support at home to reduce social isolation and provide motivation to make plans for the future.
