`I shouldn’t compare myself to others because we are all different`

This term has seen us run a number of different confidence groups at Cathedral, Ossett, Outwood, Beckets and City. These groups have had a really significant impact on the young people we have worked with. The overwhelming majority have said that the groups have improved their confidence.

Through a wide range of activities focusing on self-esteem, friendship and overcoming challenges, we have worked alongside our young people and seen them begin to accept and value themselves.

The above quote is from a student *Heather who started one of the confidence groups as a very shy individual who often put herself down. She often compared herself to others, peers, celebrities and shared how she could never be like them. During the last session of the course Heather shared how through looking at self-esteem, she had learnt to accept herself and not compare herself to others.

It’s a great opportunity to be able to help and support our young people grow in confidence.
