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:

  • Support for LGBT+ young people on a 1-1 basis as well as in Step Out (our LGBT+ youth group). Can also provide support to schools to set up their own groups.
  • Break The Cycle- It is the aim of the Break the Cycle project to offer tailored 1-1 support to males aged 11-16 at an early intervention stage that will 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 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.
  • Support for low level sexual offences e.g. inappropriate touching, sending and receiving images etc.
  • Emotional Control sessions within school. Groups of around 5 BYM who have been highlighted by the school as being unable to control their emotions, normally displaying quite aggressive behaviour within school. This project 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.
  • Supporting young males aged 11-19 with learning disabilities around Relationships and sexual behaviour

Commercial Sex Workers Project

A project supporting women working within massage parlours/saunas in Hull.

Visiting the massage parlours/saunas once a week, and independent workers as they request, it supports women by offering a non-judgemental, friendly ear.  This can be around any aspect of their life, advice around housing issues, educational courses or accessing reputable childcare in their area.

For example, recent work has included supporting a woman in having her children returned to her from the looked after system; encouraging clients into services for mental health problems; helping a family flee domestic violence and access affordable legal assistance and encouraging clients to take care of their health.  Support around health includes guidance around breast examination, and regular health check such as smear tests.  The project can accompany clients to these services and act as advocate to support in the access and treatment.

The project offers very a holistic approach to ensure working woman are able to access support they need when they need it.  If the project worker is unable to help, signposting and referrals to appropriate services is offered.

Tender

Cornerhouse  has  teamed  up  with  Tender  who  are  a  London based charity to deliver The Tender Healthy Relationship Programme that has been run across London for the past 10 years.

Tender Healthy Relationships is a 10 hour project which works with one class of students in either Year 8, 9 or 10.  Our aim is to help students develop skills for building healthy and respectful relationships.  We achieve this through open, creative workshops that explore the healthy and unhealthy aspects of relationships, empowering students to consider their attitudes and behaviour in an age appropriate way. 

The culmination of the project is a performance, where students can share their knowledge to their peers (approx 180 students).

The project also includes a 1 hour CPD accredited Staff INSET session for 20 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.  

Once the Inset has been delivered, your school will be given a copy of the Tender Facilitator pack (which retails at £45). This pack will enable you to embed the learning into your own school practice through lesson plans, statistics and research information.

Participation in this programme can boost student achievement in Drama, PSHE and Citizenship, and can help schools achieve the new OFSTED criteria for outstanding PSHE teaching.  

Participants will learn to:

  • Understand the characteristics of healthy and unhealthy relationships
  • Develop drama and communication skills
  • Discuss attitudes towards relationships constructively
  • Advocate respect and equality in their peer groups and communities
  • Offer appropriate support to their peers and seek support if they need it

There  are  a  limited  amount  of  projects  available  this  school  year,  so  please  get in  touch  with Viv at  your  earliest convenience if you have any further questions or if you would like to book in a project.
