Pick Your Own

Register your Interest

PYO provides a bespoke package of coaching, mentoring and befriending, offering neutral, non-clinical provision as an alternative to more formal support that many young people and families find doesn’t work for them and isn't easily available. It supports quieter young people who are less visible and not being noticed through more outward behaviour but who are, nevertheless, vulnerable and at risk of social exclusion and poor emotional health and wellbeing without sensitive, personalized intervention. PYO works collaboratively with young people supporting their best hopes.

PYO supports young people at their chosen space and pace, with person-centred, strengths-based support.

As a member of the Board you are required to attend 4-6 meetings a year. An interest and time availability to support Elizabeth with networking, fundraising and approaching the corporate community around CSR and partnership is desired.
