Our vision is to support delivery of good quality provision and enable organisations to better meet the needs of their service users.
Mama Bee's unique and collaborative approach in designing projects ensures programmes are customised and reactive to deliver positive outcomes for all.
Mama Bee offers organisations working with young people and communities an effective and innovative way of capturing the needs and ideas of service users. We have over ten years experience in meaningful participation and engagement.
All Mama Bee projects are participant led, this means that your service users take control of the content and structure of the programmes with the facilitators. This leads to more productive engagement and a sense of ownership of learning and development.
Here at Mama Bee we provide the opportunity for organisations to develop their own fusion projects to work in partnership with their service users.
Organisations consult with us to provide customised projects and provision to meet their specific requirements.
These may include:
Goal setting and progress mapping
Developing group work
Sexual health and sexuality
How to identify abuse in relationships
Challenging oppressive views
Risk of CSE (child sexual exploitation).
Costs for the design and delivery of a customised project is based on the duration of work and specific requirements.
Right now we are working in some great partnerships under the Mama Bee Fusion Project umbrella.
