WELCOME!

Hello and welcome to your July 2021 Issue of Shine Magazine!

July is always a busy time for Young Futures as we celebrate the birthday of Yvonne House and this year we are also hearing lots of busy thoughts about getting into work and employment...so this month's feature is all about that. We have some invaluable tips and information from young people in this feature- make sure that you don't miss this fantastic advice from one young person on how to excel in job interviews. To complement this, we have an interview, in the Round Up section, with one of our Young Futures Team members, so you can hear more about what a day in her work life is like.

You'll see that we've also been busy going on exciting Sports, Culture and Arts activities! Make sure you check out one young person's review of going horse riding and kayaking with his keyworker, as well as our teams thoughts after they went to see the inspiring and dynamic performance by care experienced young people, called 'What's in a Name'.

We have some powerful pieces in Creative Corner, we have some great tips from a young person who recently moved from Yvonne House to her community flat, and as we have all been getting so busy, in our Self-Care and Wellbeing section we look at the links between sleep and mental health, and share some ideas to support a good nights rest.

As always we hope you enjoy and would love to hear your feedback :)
