We deliver a preventative and crisis support for vulnerable children, young people and their families. Through mentoring, therapy and family support, we help build people’s resilience and give them the tools to cope with life’s challenges.
We deliver accredited training to families to help them improve their well-being as well as gain skills and qualifications that will allow them to have brighter futures. We also train other professionals who work with children and families.
We deliver support for pre-school children and their families through our flying start nursery settings. We also have a specialist nurture crèche offering a stimulating, sensory and safe environment for young children to explore and play.
We deliver both after school and holiday play clubs in a variety of settings for children aged 3-11 years old. Having fun in a safe and stimulating environment is the main objectives of the clubs, however children’s physical and emotional well-being is always at the forefront of our activities.
In addition to this, the team have been busy with a range of accredited and non-accredited training courses in:
Fitness Fridays have evolved, and we have started our wellbeingwalking@thedocks group, with both Parents and children
This non accredited course develops skills for digital resilience by using and introducing: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Publisher. The project builds confidence and encourages participants to use digital devices, packages and platforms.
We support participants to create a PowerPoint for an interview setting and walk through how they can then deliver their work, this is shared with others on the course and has made an enormous impact on the confidence of the participants.
During the course we encourage friendly discussions and sharing experiences they have had with Word, PowerPoint, and other packages and we work towards creating digital awareness and confidence. Many have gained more knowledge than they expected to have from the course. Feedback has been positive, and resilience wellbeing has increased e.g Learner 1 start wellbeing score 39-End score 43.
COVID has presented CYCA with many opportunities to grow and develop our business model. One of our overarching long-term goal of delivering professional training pan-Wales has come to fruition. We have trained professionals from the four corners of Wales, most recently in Machynlleth.
Our Professional Resilience Training is differentiated and designed to take account of the structure and roles within each organisation. We train from top down, Senior Managers and the Leadership teams undertake Accredited Resilience, and front-line staff undertake the non-accredited version. The reason why we approach training in this way is that the whole organisation has a new resilient language, managers can support and supervise colleagues in a resilient way. Peer-to-peer support is effective to support others.
