1625 Outreach

Education

We work with schools, colleges, alternative education providers, and universities to support young people and young adults to stay aware, safe, and well. Our interventions are designed to address the needs of 16 to 25-year-olds and are tailored to the level and requirements of the establishment/provider. We offer a range of interventions and interactive workshops.

              A fully immersive and interactive workshop.
