The Flower 125 Programme was conceived in Sheffield in 1998 due to a need exhibited by vulnerable children and young people. The programme delivers a comprehensive range of health promotion activities using a unique model.  This model of delivery has proven to be extremely successful in improving the confidence, self-esteem and health knowledge of children and young people as well as improving relationships between young people themselves and also that with adults.

The ethos of the programme is that children and young people should be involved at every step and that facilitators are part of the group. The programme and training have continually evolved to meet the changing needs of children and young people as well as the facilitators that deliver it.

Programme in schools and other settings

The programme is most often delivered to children and young people in small groups of 8 – 10 in schools.  It has, however, also been delivered in a range of other settings and group sizes.  As the Flower 125 Health Programme is structured but not prescriptive and facilitators are the experts on the groups with whom they are working, it is easily adaptable to the specific needs of most groups with careful consideration and planning.

The programme requires at least 2 facilitators who are most often school staff, learning mentors, teaching assistants, pastoral leads, anyone who has the capacity and enthusiasm to deliver the programme to small groups of children and young people is suitable for the training.

“I have done lots of online training over the last 12 months and yours has blown the rest out of the water. The focus on building relationships within the online group made a huge difference I think and the balance was spot on with break out rooms, screen sharing, whole group for me.”  (Flower 125 Participant)
We are currently accepting applications from professionals working with children and young people who would like to facilitate health and well-being workshops using the Flower 125 model and to become trained facilitators.
