We are a team of 7 staff, with one case worker for each of the following areas: Wyre Forest, Redditch, Bromsgrove, Worcester, Malvern and Wychavon. We offer short-term group support programmes for those experiencing mild to moderate emotional difficulties, specifically anxiety and low mood. These programmes are based on skills which research has discovered helps children and young people with these difficulties. Government recommendations promote group work as the first way to help children and young people with these issues as early as possible.

What We Do
To maximise our effectiveness the Reach4Wellbeing Team focus on delivering group programmes for children and young people. The groups are held during term time and are run in schools or other local community settings. We are not always able to offer a group in the child or young person’s own school, but we will aim to offer a place in an alternative school or community setting, please note that in order for your child to receive this intervention transportation to and from the venue will be your responsibility.
Each of the sessions is evidence based and we are able to offer the following:
• A seven week anxiety and low mood programme for young people age 13 and over
• A six week anxiety programme for older children age 9 -12 years
• A six week anxiety programme (Little Explorers) for younger children age 5 - 8 years, for this age group please note that a parent or their representative is required to attend the sessions.
