We follow the six principles of the Nurture network
The Nurture Group Principles:
- Children’s learning is understood developmentally
- The classroom/school offers a safe base
- Nurture is important for the development of self-esteem
- Language is understood as a vital means of communication
- All behaviour is communication
- Transitions are significant in the lives of children
In order to be happy, content and enjoy positive relationships with our life and those in it, we need our basic human needs to be met. When they are not, both our physical and mental wellbeing suffers.
There are times we could all do with some support and guidance to help us to thrive and live a life worth living!
We offer support to schools, young people, families and workplaces with well-being, mental health, behaviour and motivation, in an attempt to ensure every young person fulfils their potential to Bedazzle!
Our vision is that every young person feels their capacity to Bedazzle
Our founders, lifelong professionals working in public health, education, and care, have seen this belief slipping incrementally over the past decade.
It was for this reason we established Bedazzle, as a charitable organisation in April 2016. Our launch event; “Speak Up” involved over 50 young people, who helped shape the charity and the services we offer.
