The health and wellbeing of our Teens family is our absolute priority and as such, in line with advice from the Government and Health authorities, we have taken the decision to temporarily postpone our Teens’ activity days for the next 12 weeks.
But don’t worry, we have a plan!
We’re excited to be launching brand new digital events (a variety of different topics, plus a few fun games – think virtual Pictionary, quizzes and many more) that young people will be able to get involved in.
What is a virtual event, I hear you say?
It’s an opportunity for young people to still meet up and connect with us and each other but without the need to travel.
Our programme will be a mix of interactive online video sessions, such as Yoga for beginners, Q&As with nutritionists, skincare specialists etc, as well as some fun projects to do offline and e-learning opportunities. We’ll also be hosting group ‘meet ups’ online so we can chat and catch up on all things Teens.
These events are only available to registered teens. We will be posting our digital events on the website as usual and on our social channels so keep an eye out. Young people will be able to register in the normal way.
Fundraising is more vital than ever
We want to personally thank all our dedicated supporters who are still committed to supporting us in these challenging circumstances, to support our young people, support our communities and take care of one another.
We expect the days, weeks and months ahead to be testing. I know that working together to support each other we will meet the many challenges we will face.
The young people we support will STILL be going through cancer treatment and will STILL have all those hurdles to face, as well as coping with the concerns coronavirus has brought with it.
Now more than ever there is the chance that many young people will be feeling increasingly isolated and we are determined to help everyone stay united and keep connected. So, we are looking into how we can take your fundraising online so that we can continue to be there for everyone that needs us.
If you have a fundraising event or activity that was planned in the next few weeks do get in touch for support and advice. We’ll also be contacting those with specific events we know will be affected.
Remember, you’re not on your own, we’re here for you and working hard to ensure we’re keeping in touch and supporting each other.
With very best wishes from all of us at Teens Unite x
Detailed below are our events for Teens, Volunteers, Fundraising and Challenges.
Volunteering with Teens Unite has changed my personality and outlook on life. When I hear all the amazing things the teens say about Teens Unite, I can tell they mean every word.
Teens Unite isn't just a charity to me, it was the beginning of restarting my life.
When Elliot started receiving the support of Teens Unite, I could see a change in him straightaway. His outlook on life was becoming positive again and I gained strength from seeing my little boy accepting what had happened and starting to move forward.
I needed help and that's where Teens Unite came in. I believe that everything happens for a reason, and the reason I met Teens Unite was to save my life.
With Teens Unite, I finally realised that I could climb out of this massive hole that I had been digging because I wasn't alone anymore.
If it wasn't for Teens Unite, I wouldn't be where I am now. They have been really supportive and given me the strength to push myself and not give up.
