About Us

We follow the principle of coproduction and collaboration to create and deliver health educational programmes in schools, colleges, care homes and pupil referral units. As we adapt to the latest climate, we specifically work with young people in local communities to tailor our foundations, using their knowledge and experience to adapt what we know and support them to create and deliver these programmes within the local vicinity.

These young people gain several life and employability skills, who we then refer to local employers. The students who receive the peer delivered the programme gain insights into coping with mental health, relationships, independence, and resilience from a lived experience point of view.

We work collaboratively with local authorities, NHS departments and community organizations who work alongside the peer led programme, offering professional support and advice, signposting, and raising awareness of their services and opportunities the young people and their families can access.

Dave Clayton represents Selnet Member Wot Wud U Do CIC and is currently a Director on our Board.
