increased confidence and sense of empowerment
The programme also contributed to young people’s subjective well-being, by building their confidence and capacity to trust and connect with others and to believe in themselves. All of the young people said the service helped them to understand relationships and how to deal effectively with a range of difficult situations that could also help them to deal with future situations they may encounter.
