Diabetes Transition Service
As part of a national youth social prescribing pilot, 4YP is a specialist provider of Health Coach Youth Workers to the Ipswich Hospital diabetes transition service, supporting clinics and individual young people, to increase their engagement in maintaining their own wellbeing and to contribute to reducing hospital admissions.
Post-16 Football & Education Programme
4YP is developing a programme of wraparound support for male and female elite young footballers seeking careers in sport, who are continuing their education with Ipswich Town Football club when they leave secondary school.
In 2023 4YP became a member of the Warm Handovers Referral Scheme; a trusted and coordinated network of statutory, voluntary and independent sector organisations, who provide healthcare, financial or wellbeing support services to young people who are Suffolk residents. This enables referrals to be made and received for people who would benefit from what different organisations offer and means that they only need to tell their story once.
The ‘Thomas Wolsey 550’ project launched in March 2023 to recognise and celebrate the 550th anniversary of the birth of Cardinal Thomas Wolsey (c1473-1530). 4YP is pleased to support the project as it looks to build a new legacy for 0–25 year-olds, that increases social mobility – helping to build a sense of aspiration for local people – and promotes mental or physical health and wellbeing through accessing and/or experiencing local culture and heritage.
Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Council’s Youth Social Prescribing
Together The Mix and 4YP provide Youth Link Workers to four secondary schools and their feeder primary schools, across two district councils, working with individuals and cohorts of young people to improve their wellbeing.
The Youth Link Workers work with each young person and their family to identify and access community activities that suit their interests and improve their wellbeing and provide activities within the school setting that are co-designed with young people and school teams e.g., gender groups and after school groups.
The vision shared by Workhorse Generation and all their Charity Partners and supporters is to create a better world and support tomorrow’s generation through all that life throws at them as they prepare for working life.
