Loneliness is no longer just associated with the elderly, studies show it now affects over 10% of children in high schools, with Yorkshire and Humber being the worse hit with 29%. This means more young people are spending time alone and aren't developing friendships in a key stage of development.
We offer workshops to children aged 8-13 years to develop their soft skills to help them tackle times of adversity. We support attendees by promoting open conversations with family and friends, building their confidence and giving them a safe space to learn from each other. Facilitated in groups of 10 we also work on relieving any anxiety felt around getting back involved in social gatherings by providing a virtual alternative through the means of immersive video.
We love community and that's why our video content is based on locations and events which children can relate to and that are local to them, some even on their doorstep! Because we recognise that for a number of reasons, some children aren't able to enjoy the same things as their peers, which is why INC offers an alternative experience.
We cover a range of topics and are able to design bespoke packages to suit your needs, and would look to align content with the national curriculum to enhance learning outcomes.
Meet the Team
After arranging local events, which she realised couldn't be enjoyed by a number of young people, Steph decided to combine her passion for helping others with the ever-growing tech industry. Qualified in Mental Health First Aid and an avid volunteer with local organisations, she set up INC360 in July 2019 to support young people in feeling socially included.
Wanting to provide more than just a one time experience, she has designed a structure which teaches long term skills whilst also being fun and engaging in the moment.
Sophie joined the team to provide support as a Mental Health Advisor after gaining an abundance of experience as a children's wellbeing practitioner and clinic supervisor.
She has worked with a range of ages and helped people understand and overcome mental illness and her role within the business is to ensure we are always putting the wellbeing of attendees first.
This year we also had 3 students complete a placement with us and whilst their time with INC has come to an end, we want to give them a shoutout for playing such big parts in the pilot.
