The Showcase Episode 1 - Young people Deserve to be Celebrated

Back in August, we held "The Showcase" a youth-led event filled with emotion, celebration, learning, and hope.

Check out the 1st episode of 3 part film documenting the day.

The film will show a snippet of amazing work going on within the Housing and Homelessness Team at the NIYF.

Please take a few minutes to complete our survey.

We are looking to gather information on Mental Health and Well being in Education.

If we want to transform Well-Being Education for all in Schools in the future this is the start. This survey will take no longer than 5 minutes and could provide us with crucial information.

Whatever you are experiencing it’s important to know
