Life After Lockdown is a  four-week programme of one-hour sessions designed to explore social networks, isolation, and how we manage our relationships following the long-term lockdown which has been necessary during the pandemic.

By exploring these subject areas, and by looking at the anxieties young people face as we come out of lockdown, we hope that we can help young people to build resilience so they are well-equipped for the `New Normal’ we all face.

Courses will be delivered virtually via ZOOM. Priority access for young people in the Ashford area.


As a part of this programme, young people are encouraged to take part in a Mindful Bingo sheet over the Summer holidays – encouraging young people to embrace the benefits of mindfulness over the holiday period.

Any young person completing this will be in with a chance of winning a £25 Amazon Voucher.
