Helping Hands

Wycombe Youth Action’s Helping Hands is a youth-led forum that supports, empowers and equips young people to deliver projects on behalf of Wycombe Youth Action in a practical way.

Young people are at the forefront of the group and its work, from identifying a situation or topic to work with, to the planning, fundraising and executing of that project within the local community.

The group promotes, encourages and enables young people to use their voice to share their vision of their work. Young people are given the opportunity to discuss concerns or themes in the local area, engage with those in the community and create projects which can best address these situations.Being a community-based group, young people will be encouraged to collaborate with other community-based projects, groups and charities to best create long-lasting positive change.

Who for: Young people aged between 11 – 18 years old

Beauty and The Truth 

The aim of the project is to break down the concepts of beauty; it addresses beauty and the concept ‘is beauty more than skin deep’. The project is an exploration of beauty outside of self, aiming to raise awareness and break the cycle of relating the word beauty only to aesthetics.  It also aims for those attending to understand how different personality traits bring beauty to the world.
