Funded by the Big Lottery from 2013 – 2018, Stevenage Youth Connects is a Tilehouse counselling project in partnership with The Create Network. Currently running in six secondary schools the project was born from the identified need of young people in Stevenage to find a way to express, understand and manage their emotions in a constructive rather than destructive manner.

Working with the young people, the facilitators use the creativity of art and music to promote and enhance the positive mental and emotional well-being of those taking part. Equipping them with strategies and tools they can use beyond the life of the project.
