In 2014 KIM’s services developed further to include support for men and young people.
KIM4Him was developed and facilitated by 3 male social work students on different placements over a 10 month period with no dedicated resources. This proved a very popular group and 3 years on have finally secured funding to maintain this valuable service.
At the same time we established a service for young people, the KIM-Betweeners; an innovative project aimed at confidence building, reducing isolation and helping young people aged 13-24 make the change to a more positive and motivated mind set.
