The charity aims to provide opportunities for young people aged 11 to 25 years living in North Pembrokeshire to acquire the confidence, self-esteem and skills to overcome the obstacles they may encounter on their journey from childhood to adulthood; whilst also encouraging them to explore their interests and play an active role within their community.

The Nurturing the Future project at POINT offers quality, seamless mental health and emotional wellbeing through a range of different platforms and partner organisations; benefiting young people, front-line workers, volunteers, groups and parents in the community.

This professional support service is achieved through one-to-one counselling sessions with a qualified Counsellor, emotional and wellbeing check-ins with qualified Youth Workers, chats and activities with fully trained volunteer Mentors (recruited from our local community) and group support and socialisation accessed through drop in and other scheduled activities.

The Nurturing the Future project also offers training to adults living across Pembrokeshire to be able to learn the skills and tools to support young people with mental health issues. Whether in a personal or professional capacity, the Youth Mental Health First Aid course is having a positive trickle effect of raising awareness and reducing stigma of mental health issues across our county and beyond.
