As part of our continuing support for leaders during these challenging times, we are excited to launch a 4-week taster programme that covers both Virtual Sessions and #BBatHOME programmes.

The taster programme is designed to provide a fully resourced and structured programme over the course of a 4-week period, helping to provide you with everything you need to run an engaging, balanced and successful programme of activities for children and young people.

66% respondents to our Parents/Carers survey agreed that virtual sessions had a positive impact on their child, improving their mental health and wellbeing.

How does it work?

The programme provides a fully resourced plan for each week, including a choice of activities, videos and PowerPoint slides and will signpost where you will find additional resources you’ll need. This has been designed to try to provide leaders with as much support as possible, and particularly for those who have not yet tried Virtual Sessions or #BBatHOME. 

Please take time to read through the Leader Guidance which provides support and ideas on using the taster programmes.

You can also find a recording of our webinar launching the Taster Programmes at which will help you get started. Check out details of how you can join upcoming webinars and watch recordings of other previously run webinars at
