The Young People Service helps young adults to deal with challenging life experiences and helps them to learn how to live healthy independent lives. We offer activities and events that enable young adults to feel connected, protected, uplifted and part of a community.
The programme delivers a range of weekly activities and quarterly events to educate, include, and inspire young people.
We want to provide an opportunity for young adults to connect with each other, and work together, to improve their lives both mentally and emotionally. We aim to help young people find their own unique voice and feel empowered to live independent, confident, and fulfilling lives.
Through the programme we strive to teach new life skills, reduce disconnection and loneliness, build confidence and resilience, improve employment potential, and most importantly help young people look forward to the rest of their lives.
The programme is open to young people between the ages of 18-25, that are residents of Merton, Sutton, Wandsworth, Kingston, or Richmond.
The programme is fully inclusive regarding gender, sexuality, and ethnicity. We also ensure the programme is wheelchair accessible.
If you are interested in participating in the Young People program, please call or message either of our young people project workers - Ivonne (07398590808) or Nikita (07944506058) - and they will book an initial assessment appointment for you.
Before you can use our services, you must attend an initial appointment (often known as an ‘assessment’). Assessments can be done either face to face, or over the phone. A member of the Young People service team will ask you some questions to gain an understanding of your current circumstances and needs, to identify how best to support your wellbeing journey.
The Sunlight Youth Cafe is open on Tuesday and Thursday 2.30 - 4:30pm
The Sunlight Youth Cafe activities are delivered both face-to-face and online via WhatsApp and Zoom platforms
