Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

Comics Youth CIC

The organisation is run by young people (13-25) with the same distance travelled and lived experiences as our targeted CYP including histories of mental ill-health, abuse, chronic illness, complex trauma and disabilities.

Coronavirus – changes to our services 

Following the revised National Youth Agency Guidelines released on the 4th of November 2020, we are pleased to confirm that Comics Youth will be able to offer face-to-face (ages 8-25) AND virtual workshops (ages 13+) for children and young people within
the Liverpool City Region. 

One to One Support

  • Every Friday between 10am-12pm and 1pm-3pm within our HQ. 

These sessions will be for young people who need support from a member of the team and young people will be able to book a session on a planned time. We hope that this will allow young people the opportunity to discuss any issues they are currently experiencing;
in a space they feel safe.  

Safe Spaces Support Group Sessions

  • Every Saturday between 1:30pm-4:30pm within our HQ 

These sessions will be for groups of young people who need the support of our gang and access to physical safe spaces. We advise a maximum of 3  young people per group visit. We hope these sessions will allow young people the opportunity to vent their frustrations,
have access to art and creative opportunities, maintain relationships with their peer group and take part in positive activities. Young people will have to book in advance. For more information please contact:
rhiannon@comicsyouth.co.uk

Safe Spaces One to One Drop In

  • Each Saturday between 11:30am-1pm

Young people will be able to visit CY HQ on their own to have a one-to-one session with a member of the team. This will be a safe space for young people to vent their frustrations, discuss creative projects, wax lyrical about cartoons or just have a natter
with our team! We’d also like to invite any youth with a Nintendo Switch to bring theirs along – we’ll have ours too and we can always do an Animal Crossing session on local play together! Young people will have to book in advance. 

Small group Wednesday Activism

  • Each Wednesday between 6:30pm-8pm at our Creative HQ

These sessions are for young people to have a safe space to focus on their Activist activity in supporting their peers over Lockdown 2. Young people will have to book in advance. 

Small group DnD

This will be an invite only session due to capacity within our groups.

All sessions can be booked here
