Many exciting things have been happening here at YourStory recently!

Despite the challenges that the pandemic has brought and is still bringing, we are still working hard to ensure that our young people get the help they need when they need it. 

We are currently partnered with Impact on Urban Health charity to run an exciting new programme. We are offering one to one mentoring and support for young people in primary and secondary schools who have health conditions or have parents / significant family members living with health conditions. 

We will soon begin looking for schools to take part in this programme as well as our ongoing Walcot Programme, which helps young people to transition from primary to secondary school since the pandemic.
