Please tell us about yourself

Before joining HeadStart, we'd like to know a bit about you.

We need just a few more details

HeadStart is for young people living in Newham and some activities are only available if you're at a HeadStart school. To find out which activities you might be able to try, we just need a few more details.

How can we help?

It would be great if everyone could join HeadStart, but our activities are for young people who really need some additional support to help them through a challenging time. Tell us a bit more about your interests and goals and we'll work out if HeadStart is right for you.

Sorry

We're really sorry, but it seems you don't live in Newham or attend a Newham school. HeadStart is for young people living in Newham or young people attending Newham schools. You can always ask your school what support they have available or check out local youth activities in your area that can help improve your resilience and wellbeing.

Sorry

HeadStart is probably not right for you at the moment as it seems you may need support from a specialist mental health professional. If you are not already receiving this support, then you should get in touch with the Newham specialist mental health service. You can find more information about support for young people by visiting our HeadStart Resources page.

Because technology doesn't always get it right, if you think our quiz has made a mistake, you can drop us a line at HeadStart.programmeteam@newham.gov.uk

Who would like to get involved in HeadStart?
