What is PathWEYES?

PathWEYES is a service for Young People with SEND who could benefit from some support accessing local services or activities by working with them to understand what they need or want to achieve, looking at local opportunities and helping them make steps towards taking part. The service is available to young people living in a North East or North Cumbria Postcode, aged from 11 to 18.

You may have an idea of the type of opportunities you want to access, such as peer groups, youth projects or mental health support, or you may want some more general help understanding what is nearby for you.


What can you expect if you take part in PathWEYES?

One of our experienced team will assess your needs and interests in 1-2-1 sessions and then signpost you to local services and activities that could benefit you. Once this part of the process is complete, they can signpost you to services and activities, provide introductions to useful organisations and, where relevant, connect you to a local mentor who will help you take your first steps to taking part.
