HeadStart Newham is a young people’s mental health service.

We work closely with schools and the community to transform how young people view mental health. We help with building their confidence, emotional resilience & overall wellbeing.

 

Headstart Newham and Change Grow Live work together with specialist providers. They offer a variety of sports and creative arts workshops to Newham's children, specifically between the ages of 10 - 16. Experienced Youth Practitioners provide one-to-one throughout our courses.
