Pick Your Own (PYO) is a Community Interest Company offering free and low cost 1:1 support for isolated, withdrawn or stuck young people aged 13-21 yrs in Brighton & Hove. It is delivered by Elizabeth who has 25+ years of experience in education, SEN and wellbeing. PYO supports young people at their chosen space and pace, with person-centred, strengths-based support. It connects virtually via mediums that the young person is comfortable with and face to face, with a COVID safe approach, including gardens, parks and outdoor cafes, as appropriate.
PYO meets you in a park near you for a walk and a chat, Blue-belle dog is optional
PYO helps young people try new things, we'll go with you
"The support provided by PYO has been outstanding. A was very unhappy before the support started and she is like a totally different person now. She has definitely grown in confidence and is willing to try new experiences. She finds the social group which is run once a week very beneficial and she very much values the 1:1 sessions that she has received. I am beyond grateful for the work that has gone into supporting A."
