Best Friends is a unique service that bridges the gap between generations. It brings care home residents, Foothold volunteers and their pets together with young people. By visiting care homes with pets and young people, our ‘Best Friends’ service creates new friendships and understanding between the generations. It gives all who take part the chance to meet new people and make friends, share life experience and perspectives, whilst benefiting from the companionship of a pet to share their affections. The pets act as a bridge, opening conversations and helping calm and reassure all who take part. Our ‘Best Friends’ service supports young people to build their self-esteem and confidence, whilst helping others in their local community.
As part of our Back2Basics project we offer 'Life Skills' support for young people between the ages of 14 - 24 Our Support Workers can help with a whole host of practical and personal admin that can be a real struggle to navigate if you’ve never been shown how.
Youth social action refers to activities that young people do to make a positive difference to others or the environment. There are lots of ways that young people can take practical action to make a positive difference #BeTheChange gives young people a voice in making their community a better place to live. It recognises that often young people want to make a change in their communities but don’t know where to start.
