HeadStart Mentoring


HeadStart’s ambition is to equip young people to better deal with difficult circumstances in their lives, so as to prevent them from experiencing common emotional and mental health problems

HeadStart will focus on building a sustainable system where every young person in Kent will be able to say with confidence:

“People around me understand wellbeing and how to promote it.”

“My overall wellbeing is not impacted by the pressure to achieve and to be perfect.”

“There is always someone for me to talk to.”

YLF is partnered with the HeadStart programme in Swale and Gravesham, and from January 2019 will be supporting Maidstone and Thanet districts. In July 2019, we will also commence support in Dover and Tonbridge and Malling.
