Upcoming Courses 2023

Course 1:

Connecting Youth

This is a proven 5 week course for Parents, please read below our conclusion from an evaluation complied from Liverpool One


This grant funded an intervention aiming to enhance parents and carers’ ability to support and promote the emotional wellbeing of their children and young people. Family support is crucial for young people’s mental wellbeing. Good relationships with parents or carers and a positive and supporting family environment help children and young people to build resilience and to thrive.


Sanctuary Family support provided evidence of positive changes enabled by this intervention, including the results of a pre-evaluation form investigating the hopes, expectations and feelings about their participation in the project, and post-evaluation forms investigating changes achieved.


According to this evidence, the grant helped parents and carers to improve communication with their children and young people, and to gain a better understanding of the challenges and issues faced by younger generations. This project helped parents and carers to build resilience by providing them with the necessary knowledge and skills to cope with difficult situations and changes. As a result, children and young people received better support from their families.


From the analysis of relevant forms, the charity showed great flexibility in managing this project to adapt it to the needs and demands of participants. The charity redefined the model of delivery to make the contents and activities more accessible to the many older parents and grandparents who became involved in the project.

The charity offers a comprehensive package of services to its beneficiaries, as it can rely on a counsellor, two family support workers and a health and wellbeing ‘navigator’. The availability of an internal counsellor is fundamental also for addressing issues arising from or during the delivery of specific projects. As argued during the interview, some of the parents and carers supported by this charity have been through traumatic experiences, including as victims of neglect or sexual abuse. In this respect, the charity seems equipped to provide timely additional support to its beneficiaries, should they require it.

Course 3

Writing the Mind

When we anchor our mind to the present moment, our senses are alive.  We take notice: the rumbling sound of a distant car engine, the smell of bubblegum, the sight of falling blossom.  It’s in this moment of stillness that we are able to feel our way back to the past.  It’s here that we stop trying to control the mind and follow it to our truth.

Learn features of memoir writing – Anchor yourself in the present through breath work to feel into the senses – Express your truth and liberate your voice through memoir writing – Discover the power of reading your creative work aloud in a safe and supported space.
