Welcome to Lifespace - Supporting young people's wellbeing


We share your belief that every young person in your school is amazing. We know that when life gets tough, whatever the reason, the time and space to talk about what's going on can help them to feel more positive about themselves and their lives.

With more than 18 years experience working in partnership with schools, we know what works well. Our programmes can support young people in primary schools (from 7 to 11), secondary schools, special schools and alternative provision settings.

We offer mentoring programmes, workshops (new programme for 2022/23) and leadership opportunities.

Mentoring Programmes: Young people tell us that when someone gives them protected time and a confidential space to actively listen to them, without judgement, it really helps. Our youth work approach, side-by-side with the young person where our agenda is their agenda and we meet them "where they're at" builds a strong connection that means we can work together on what they need.

Mentoring can support various areas of a young person's life including 
friendship and social challenges; school anxiety or exam stress; social media and bullying; family relations; being a young carer; exploring gender or sexuality; and having care-experience.

Mentoring sessions are usually delivered on the same day/s each week so that your staff can plan ahead. Regular updates and/or meetings make sure that every student we see is getting what they need to make the difference they want.

Our team of mentors are typically supporting 220 young people in schools across South/Mid Warwickshire each week. Want to know more? Get in touch by calling 01789 297400 or emailing admin@lifespace.org.uk.
