MAP (Mancroft Advice Project)
Who we are
MAP’s aim is to help young people to have better, healthier lives, to overcome barriers to realising their potential. Our vision is that all young people will know what it is to be valued; that they will have the support and information they need to make a successful transition to adulthood.
Our advice team gives specialist advice on practical things that might affect young people, such as welfare rights, employment, education and training, money and debt, housing and homelessness, sexual health, being a parent and developing strong family relationships. With the right advice, young people are more likely to find secure housing, successful personal relationships and employment or training opportunities that meet their needs, interests and skills.
MAP’s counsellors and youth mental health workers work with young people to overcome personal problems they might be experiencing. We offer crisis counselling across Norfolk, where young people can talk privately in quiet, safe places about issues affecting their well-being. With your support, we can offer more counselling sessions to more young people, helping them find immediate relief, to work through what's troubling them and prevent longer-term mental health issues from developing.
Our team of Youth Workers deliver activities and events for young people to enable them to develop new skills, increase their confidence, meet new people and have a greater role in shaping what is happening in their community. Through informal learning and personal development, young people develop a sense of belonging and aspiration. Your support will enable us to give more young people the opportunity to realise their potential.
