Boys and Young Mens Project

The BYM project exists to meet the needs of boys and young men aged 11-19 in Hull and the surrounding areas. The interventions they project can deliver are as follows:


Break the Cycle is a project offering tailored 1-1 support to males aged 11-16, at an early intervention stage.  The aim is to work with the young men identified as showing early warning signs of abusive behaviours, and to support them in their understanding of themselves and relationships to prevent behaviours from escalating and becoming more serious. The support will “nudge” these males back on to a healthier path by delivering weekly sessions with no fixed end date. 
The project also offers a 5 week programme in schools, working with small groups of young men who have been identified by the school as needing extra support with emotional control, these could be young men potentially displaying quite aggressive behaviours within school. The programme aims to help these young people express their emotions in a healthier way, by learning to spot the early triggers and giving techniques to help control emotions better.

*The project is not for young people who are currently witnessing domestic abuse at home. If this is the case please treat it as a safeguarding issue and deal with it appropriately.*

Peer Mentoring - HeadStart

The project offers one to one support and befriending to young people aged 10-16 within schools and the community. Young people are invited to apply for the role of peer mentor, they are then selected and trained to ensure that they have the skills and knowledge necessary to support young people identified as having emotional health needs. These could be due to a number of factors including stress of exams, bullying, isolation, and/or family issues.

The mentee will receive:

Regular support from a positive role model close to their own age
Support with issues which impact upon personal growth and development
Help with identifying goals
Help with action planning and problem solving

Peer mentors will not make decisions for the mentees; however, they will suggest options, identify consequences and/or share their experiences.

The peer mentors will support with individual issues and give young people the opportunity to discuss any worries they have.

Each mentor will work in partnership with the young people’s peer mentoring project worker and will receive regular support via group and one to one supervision.

If you would like any further information or to discuss a referral, please email Becky Braithwaite rebeccabraithwaite@wearecornerhouse.org or call 01482 326513

Relationship and Sex Education

Cornerhouse provides a range of services for schools and colleges that can enhance the PSHE Education curriculum and support for students and staff.

Relationship and Sex Education:

Cornerhouse offers a wide range of RSE workshops which provide a programme of learning that builds a firm base of knowledge around relationships, sexual health and wellbeing, equipping young people with the necessary skills to make informed choices.

Our sessions promote open, frank and positive discussions about bodies, identity, gender, relationships, consent and sex at an age-appropriate level, that challenge negative societal attitudes and embraces sexual diversity, while emphasising the importance of consent.

Our team of youth workers are equipped to deliver fun, engaging and interactive sessions and are adaptive to the needs of the group, we all work one to one with young people around the same subjects we offer sessions on and bring “real life” knowledge, and where appropriate, scenarios, to our workshops.

We can cover all aspects of the RSE curriculum, if there’s something you’re looking for specifically get in touch, we have a vast array of resources to create bespoke sessions to meet your needs.

Tender – Healthy Relationships Project

Our engaging, drama-based sessions empower students with the skills and confidence to build positive, respectful relationships with others, and to consider their attitudes and behaviour in a safe, age appropriate way. During our workshops, we work with one class in a year group in which they will:

  • Identify key elements of healthy and unhealthy relationships
  • Recognise early warning signs of unhealthy relationships
  • Explore the importance of equality and respect
  • Understand personal boundaries and consent
  • Increase self-confidence and empathy for others
  • Develop awareness of where to seek or signpost support

They will then create a performance to present this knowledge back to the rest of their year group.

Our current project also include a 1-hour CPD accredited INSET session for 15 or more staff, enabling them to become more confident around the issue of relationship violence and to be able to effectively ensure the safeguarding of their students.
