Students were informed about the objectives of HeadStart, funding from the Big Lottery and how the project is being piloted in six areas in the U.K. “We want to equip young people to cope better with difficult circumstances, preventing them from experiencing common mental health problems before they become serious issues.” – The Big Lottery Fund.

Students have been learning about the voluntary sector in Health & Social Care; this visit highlighted how charities support health and well being for children and young people in Wolverhampton.

Students were explained the benefits of volunteering and invited to formally apply for volunteering opportunities at HeadStart Wolverhampton.
