Elevate works with young people and their dimensions of wellbeing. We think that young people become more resilient, happier, optimistic, and learn more about themselves and their ability to affect their world when they know who they are, when the focus is on what they have, when there is belief that they can make a change and when they take action to do so.
We are a charity that can support schools and educators to meet the wellbeing needs of students and young people. We help students re-engage with their learning and move towards their potential. We have been successfully supporting the education sector for over 10 years through our effective one-to-one and group coaching programmes that are underpinned by coaching psychology
We know that in education wellbeing support can be stretched. Many pupils end up on waiting lists for external counsellors and child mental health or behaviour services. Many don’t meet the high criteria for referral set by external agencies and can be left to cope without help. This creates an embedding of the issues when instead they can be prevented by getting support earlier. Teachers and staff are doing a good job with minimal resources, but increases in wellbeing and mental health referrals has led to a gap in support. We as a charity want all young people who need support to be able to get it. In schools where Elevate trained coaches have provided a service, counselling and behaviour referrals have reduced. We believe our approach is sustainable and cost effective, and will be beneficial for students who have need. Get in touch with us today
This is what some of our young people say about themselves following participation in our projects. These results are reinforced by educational staff, who report significant differences in the attitude and efforts of Elevate beneficiaries, and feedback that there is improvement in engagement of the pupils coached by Elevate coaches.
