WASP – Young People’s Project

WASP (Wellbeing Action Support Project) is Sunderland Mind’s young people’s project.

Our aim is to build resilience, confidence and self-esteem with young people across the city. We work with anyone aged from 7 years old to 18 years old, delivering the services outlined below.

Whilst this highlights the support we are currently offering, we are continuously identifying services that best support young people, parents and staff.

If you would like any further information about this project or about joining our team please do not hesitate to contact us on 0191 5657218, 07984595624 or email youngpeople@sunderlandmind.co.uk


*Returning to Work Update*

Since Sunderland Mind closed their doors the WASP team have been really busy working from home to provide as much support for the young people of Sunderland as possible. We are now happy to announce that we will be returning to the Sunderland Mind Wellbeing Hub from Monday 6th July 2020. However, due to the hub being open to staff members only, face to face work will continue to remain under review. This means that all current group and service work will keep running through the online and telephone services we have in place.

If you need to contact us, we are now available Monday – Friday between 10am and 4pm. Any messages left will be answered as soon as we can.

You can contact us on 0191 565 7218 or on our Young People’s mobile – 07984595624

We will continue to post lots across our social media platforms and are keen to see what you are all up to. Make sure you keep in touch with us on:

Twitter: waspand

If you feel you need urgent help and we are not available please contact Sunderland Initial Response Team (IRT) on 0303 123 1145
The service is available 24 hours, 7 days a week, throughout the year.

Further support can be found on our Crisis Help page –  or by contacting youngpeople@sunderlandmind.co.uk

We appreciate all your support during these difficult times and hope you are continuing to stay safe – The WASP Team 🙂
