The Voice Forum

Know a young person keen to raise awareness of mental health issues?

Our project, the Voice Forum, is being run for 13 to 18 year olds to raise awareness in the community of mental health issues affecting young people.

When – twice monthly on Wednesdays

Time – 5  to 6.30pm

Where – Headquarters, Fox Crescent, Chelmsford 

The Voice was established in early 2018 by Kids Inspire, together with the Essex Youth Service, to be  helpful to those who may lack confidence or have feelings of anxiety. Additionally, the group is open to siblings, peers and anyone else (aged 13-18) looking to be involved in this social movement.

Group facilitators will work with young individuals to support and ease them into the group, which will benefit from being involved in transferable skills workshops to help members to carry out group tasks. Examples of these are:

  • Blogging
  • Vlogging
  • Communication styles
  • Plus, anything else the group is interested in.

In addition, and as a part of the group, members will have the opportunity to generate fun and imaginative ideas to:

  • Fund raise*
  • Run awareness activities.

Awareness activities will central in the local community (currently – Chelmsford, Maldon and Braintree).

*Funds raised are to run the Voice Forum awareness activities.
