Bexley Moorings Project was established in 1981 and now enjoys widespread recognition and support in the local community. We are a registered charity working in the London Borough of Bexley to provide effective support for vulnerable young people, with the help of volunteers.
We are an early intervention support service that offers one-to-one befriending and specific group sessions to young people, aged 8-17, who may be experiencing material or emotional deprivation, in crises, at risk or have a caring responsibility.
Each young person is individually assessed for suitability, including willingness to join the programme, so we can tailor the support needed.
Our volunteer befrienders work on a one-to-one basis and offer focused non-judgmental support, positive experiences, advice and an adult role model. Through befriending young people grow in confidence and positively change their behaviour.
We currently offer our CRISP (Child Resilience Inclusion Social Pathway) group for young people that will benefit from social interaction and peer support.
This is a 12 week programme for young people low in confidence or exhibiting low-level behaviour problems to increase their confidence and social skills.
