COMMUNITY & EDUCATION
Our Feeling Funny: Youth programme offers schools and community organisations the opportunity to improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people whilst providing them skills to develop their relationships, confidence, self-esteem and communication.
The Laughter Lines programme was developed and piloted to use comedy and humour to engage students that were struggling to attain in normal lessons and introduce ideas that they had previously been disinterested in.
Feeling Funny Youth Club is a continuous programme for graduates of the Feeling Funny programmes to continue to express themselves through humour and comedy and keep the positive momentum of the programme going as a group of like-minded individuals.
