“We’re all looking forward to The Wellbeing Celebration Event. It’s great that our young people will be able to show what they’ve learnt and share how they’ve developed their wellbeing with their friends and family. Not only will this be amazing, but the team here at Worth-it Projects can’t wait for the conference. It’s going to be a fantastic experience for anyone involved; hearing the valued opinions and research from professionals in the field.” - Liz Robson, Managing Director and Coach at Worth-it Projects.
“I am a great supporter of the work of Worth-It projects and have heard from constituents just how valuable and life-enhancing their support has been. Ensuring good mental health and well-being is critical, particularly for our young people. Growing up today is tougher than it has ever been and Worth-It projects over a real life line to young people, their families and those who work with them when things get too much.” - Nicky Morgan, MP for Loughborough.
