Navigate is a series of seminars run by Matt and Kate specifically designed for those supporting young people – parents, teachers, youth workers etc.

Whilst the content of each evening has a particular focus on helping teenagers and young people navigate the journey from childhood to adulthood, many of the principles shared will be helpful to people of all ages.

Navigate is made up of 6 sessions designed to be run as a series – although they would work well as one off events. The final session allows those who have attended previous sessions to have their own questions asked or request topics to be covered.
