1-1 targeted support for young people

Brook’s one-to-one support work is part of our wider education offer. It is an early help programme which aims to empower and support young people to improve their own health and wellbeing.  
The structure and resources have been co-designed with young people and have been independently evaluated. 


Brook’s targeted support is educational rather than therapeutic. It is based on a supported self-help approach that supports children and young people to communicate effectively with others about their experience of relationships and sex. 

The sessions are designed to teach young people personally directed behaviour change skills and include the opportunity to practise the skills they have learned with the support of a Brook Specialist. It takes a toolkit approach to the range of resources available, allowing our specialist to create a bespoke programme for each individual young person. 

Our 1-1 targeted support is aimed at young people aged 11+ who choose to take part – voluntary engagement is key to the programme.

The structure provides a consistent framework for a programme of one-to-one sessions. Support can be delivered either as part of a fixed number of sessions (minimum of 6) or as part of ongoing support for an individual young person.


Our targeted support helps young people to:

  • increase self-efficacy
  • own their issues / actions
  • work with us as equal partners
  • identify their own goals for support
  • be inspired and motivated to see a positive future
  • aspire to thrive

“I don’t think I’ve ever had somebody listen to me before. Just listen and not tell me what to do or what I’m doing wrong. Then she taught me things I really need to know. Things they don’t teach in school. It was only 5 weeks but it’s probably the best thing I’ve ever done. Lucky things like this don’t usually happen to me.”

– Connor, 15

“I was being pressured into doing things I didn’t want to do. I can see that now. Now I know it’s okay to say no to things. I also know how to keep myself safe when I do start having sex again. I wish I’d done this two years ago.”

– Kay, 17
