The Source Young People's Charity
The Source Young People’s Charity is an inclusive local Christian Charity based in Aldershot.
We enable young people to transform their lives through our bespoke 1-1 programmes of support including Anger Management, Counselling, Life Coaching, Mentoring and Support for Young Parents.
We support and empower young people aged 14-25 living in the Boroughs of Rushmoor and Hart and surrounding areas, particularly those who are: isolated, vulnerable, struggling at school, in trouble with the law, have challenging family relationships, are homeless, in care, live on their own or are young parents.
We celebrate diversity and our doors are open to everyone regardless of belief or background.
The Source Young People's Charity has been helping to transform the lives of Young People in Rushmoor for the last eighteen years, and for some time the Board of Trustees have been looking again at the roots and original vision of the organisation.
Several of our Staff have decided to move on over the next few months, so will will take this opportunity to develop a new model. This is still under discussion, but in outline the new work will continue to focus on the needs of Young People who can benefit from Mentoring and Counselling. However, please note that during the transition we will need to limit the number of new referrals we can take.
The model envisages 3 levels of 1-1 support:
1) Counselling/Anger Management - for Young People needing Tier 2 support delivered by Trainee Counsellors under the leadership and guidance of a Senior Counsellor
2) Therapeutic Mentoring - delivered by those preparing/training to be Counsellors as above
3) General Mentoring - delivered by Volunteers locally
This will build upon and strengthen our links with the Churches, Community Groups, Youth Clubs and Youth Workers in our area. It also requires the urgent recruitment of a Senior Counsellor (or two people in a job share) to take the co-ordinating role within our Counselling Team and to help develop the model at all levels. If you know anyone who might be interested in this post please ask them to get in touch with our Director, Ellie Jones firstname.lastname@example.org 07752 084582 (Mondays - Wednesdays preferred).
