The Aim of the art therapeutic workshop is to release stress, negative mental and emotional baggage through the process of motivational art.
The objective of this workshop is to help participants create a range of paintings, drawings and collages depicting images of things that they desire, to help them attain their goals in life through the power of positive thinking.
The workshop sets out to give a greater understanding of the importance of life ambitions by creating pictorial representations of where the participants want to be. This allows the representations to manifest into a positive road to success, growth and empowerment for them as individuals.
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH FOCUS E15- The foyer has been working with young people in Newham since 1996. We are part of a network of East Potential across East London owned by East Thames Group and overseen by the ETG management Board. Our mission is to make a positive and lasting contribution to the neighbourhoods in which we work.
Focus is one of five foyers across East London and Essex with other projects in Barking, Tower Hamlets, Redbridge and Harlow.
We provide accommodation and support to 210 young people from the London Borough of Newham aged from 16-24. The young people are referred to us from the local housing department, from Social Services, probation and youth offending teams as well as local colleges and advice agencies. Each young person is allocated a flat and a named key worker and we provide support and accommodation for up to two years.
The foyer has a staff team of 12 support worker, 2 operations managers and a foyer manager. In addition we provide a 24-hour security presence on site and night workers to deal with issues arising at any time.
By the end of their stay we expect the young person to be involved in Education, employment or training and have developed all the skills that they need to live indepent lives. At the end of October 67 of our young people were involved in education and 47 were employed with another 5 young people volunteering. Last year we successfully resettled 61 young people into permanent accommodation.
As part of the foyer programme we provide a range of life skills for the young people to increase their knowledge, skills and awareness. These life skills include weekly sessions on numeracy and literacy, English as a second language, job search and CV workshops.
We also provide sessions supported by some of our partner agencies- healthy eating and sexual health supported by the Depaul Trust; financial inclusion sessions run by the FSA; knowing your rights run by Time for Youth; theatre workshops provided by Carpenters Lane group and interactive media projects in conjunction with Film East.
Over the last two years we have secured funding from the foyer Federation to run a series of healthy living activity for our residents designed to promote mental wellbeing and improved physical health. During the two-year programmed we delivered sessions such a weekly cookery club, managing stress through Yoga, swimming sessions, dance activities and anger management. Residents took courses and gained qualifications in First Aid and in food hygiene as well as football coaching and lifeguard skills.
