What we do...

Hey there, wonderful people! Our heartfelt mission is to create a positive and lasting impact on the lives of children in the UK care system. We may have some grand plans up our sleeves, but it's the sheer power of our passion and values that will keep our little bee flying.

Bee-Longing Bags

Putting an end to 'Bin bagging' children...

Welcome to Bee-Longing, where our adorable little bee and its cute suitcase symbolize the heart of our organization and our mission.

At Bee-Longing, we deeply understand the emotional impact of the dehumanizing practice of using bin bags to move children in the care system. It's a situation that tugs at our hearts, and we are committed to making a positive change.

Our ultimate goal is to ensure that EVERY SINGLE CHILD in the north-west region has access to at least one suitable bag of their own. By providing them with their very own bag, we aim to offer a sense of dignity and belonging during what can be an already challenging and difficult time.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with us to learn more about our initiatives and how you can be a part of this meaningful cause. Together, we can create a brighter and more caring future for these wonderful children. 

Bee-Leavers programme

Welcome to our Bee-Leavers programme, where we wholeheartedly believe in providing young people leaving the care system with impactful opportunities to flourish as they transition into adulthood. You might have noticed that we love a good play on words! ­čśë

Our primary focus is on offering an enriching and comprehensive training programme that ultimately leads to valuable employment opportunities for these exceptional individuals. We're committed to nurturing their growth and development, ensuring they have the skills and confidence to thrive in the adult arena.

One of our incredible founders, Nicola, is a care leaver herself. With her first-hand experience, she'll be there every step of the way, providing unparalleled support and guidance to each Bee-Leaver we have the privilege of assisting. We understand that every individual's journey is unique, which is why we've tailored a bespoke programme to cater to their specific needs and aspirations.

We firmly believe that collaboration is key to success, and that's why we actively seek and value local community links and partnerships with other organizations. Together, we can create a strong support network that empowers these young talents to reach their full potential.

We would be delighted to talk to professionals and care experienced people of any age. Get in touch if this cause aligns with your mission, or maybe sparked your interest, and you are eager to be a part of this transformative journey. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us at any time, and let's work together to make a lasting impact on the lives of these bright Bee-Leavers. ­čîč

 

Bee-Better Training

Through our Bee-better programme, we believe in addressing critical topics like self-harm, suicidal ideation, and trauma without any taboos. Our commitment is to create a safe and open space for professionals to explore these sensitive subjects, enabling them to provide proper support to young people in crisis.

Through our specialised training courses and workshops, we empower professionals with the knowledge, tools, and resources necessary to approach these difficult topics with compassion and expertise. We understand the significance of acknowledging and understanding the challenges young people face, and our aim is to equip caregivers, teachers, and emergency service personnel with the skills to respond effectively and empathetically.

By fostering an environment where discussions about self-harm, suicidal ideation, and trauma are handled with sensitivity and respect, we aim to break down the barriers and stigmas associated with these issues. Our goal is to encourage professionals to engage in open dialogue and share their experiences, fostering a supportive network of understanding and collaboration.

With our training, professionals can confidently recognize warning signs, provide appropriate interventions, and connect young people with the necessary support systems. Together, we can create a community that prioritizes mental health and well-being, ensuring that no young person feels alone in their struggles.

Let's come together to embrace these vital conversations and empower professionals to make a meaningful impact on the lives of young people facing crisis situations. Together, we can build a stronger, more compassionate support network for those in need.
