Supporting and Developing People

We build a community

At Firefly, we see young people for who they might become and enable them to be the best version of themselves. Each week we run relevant and tailored projects for young people across our area that are aimed to build confidence and generate a sense of community particularly for those who currently dont feel as included as others.

Because of us young people:

  • Make new friends
  • Find people they call a community
  • Can talk about personal issues
  • Develop team work skills
  • Listen to each other
  • Share experiences and stories
  • Socialise without a clique
  • Are more trusting of other people
  • Feel valued
  • Feel more positive about themselves
  • Are self reflective and self aware
  • Know who they are right now
  • Are ok to be who they are
  • Are happy to be an individual within a group
  • Are more independent
  • Demonstrate initiative
  • Have confidence and invite people to watch them
  • Are willing to fail and learn
  • Find ways to overcome challenges
