Renew HG1 YP sessions

A referred space where those in Years 7, 8 and 9 can come and be themselves.

Who is Renew HG1 YP for?

Renew HG1 YP is a referred service specifically designed to support young people in School Years 7, 8 and 9 who:


  • Lack self-confidence

  • Are anxious

  • Find it hard to make friends

  • Feel uncomfortable in a social environment

  • Often express feelings of loneliness 

  • Have low self-esteem

  • Struggle with their mental or emotional wellbeing


Our weekly session offers low-level support and falls under the Getting Advice section within the NHS iThrive model framework. Students can access the session via their school or other local organisations that refer directly to us.


Sadly, we are unable to accept walk-ins on the day or anyone who hasn’t been referred through the official channels. This is to keep the session safe and make it as beneficial as possible to those who need it most. If you’d like to know more about our referral process please get in touch.


What's on offer at Renew HG1 YP?

Our session will give those that attend the opportunity to:


Feel part of something away from school
