Throughout the year 6VT offers a range of personal development opportunities, consisting of short term projects and one off days. Normally these are available to any young person using any part of cafes services. However we do also welcome new users to the cafe at any time. For the open drop in provision there is no formal referral process and young people can just turn up. For those young people who need an extra bit of support, they can access our services through our "INC U" workers.
Bystanders - MVP
Many young people witness gender based violence on a daily basis. However violence is preventable and its everyone's responsibilty to stand up to violence whether reporting incidents to police, offering support to a friend or teaching family and friends to keep safe .But for many young people that do experience domestic violence may not know what to do or they think maybe others will act or may simply be too afraid to intervene.
By taking part part in the Bystanders - Mentors in Violence Prevention project (MVP), young people learn safe and positive ways they can act to prevent or intervene when there is a risk of violence. By participating in the Bystanders project, young people are committing to raise awareness of the issue of gender based violence with their peers and in their communties.
