Walk & Talk is a one-on-one support service for young people aged between 14-24 across the North of Glasgow. The service is delivered to young people who are experiencing a wide range of challenges including loneliness, isolation, or mental health issues.

walkingandtalking1Coming out of the pandemic it was apparent that there was a large number of young people facing mental health and wellbeing issues with a lack of services to support them. These issues existed before lockdown, but it is apparent that these have been exacerbated during this time.


The structure of Walk & Talk is different to most youth work provision. Volunteers meet with a young person in a social, outdoor space such as a park, or similar, in the young person’s local area and have a chance to talk with them.

 

 

 

walkingandtalking2Walk & Talk is not a counselling service, but is a chance for young people to meet with a volunteer/staff member and discuss how they are coping at the moment. It also allows for the young person to discuss anything they are struggling with.


As well as Walk & Talk being a space where young people can express how they are feeling/coping it is a chance for volunteers/staff to offer support and guidance to encourage the young people to progress towards their aspirations and goals.
