We inspire and support people who may have experienced or be experiencing low self-confidence and body image issues. We help participants by harnessing personal change, taking control of both their physical and mental health through a celebration of the human body.
Project DARE! is a not-for-profit social enterprise. It has been designed BY service users, FOR service users. We work with commissioners within the mental health, public health and education sectors to support people as an early intervention and preventative measure to low confidence, low self-esteem and body image issues. We do this to create community value – making a positive social impact is our central purpose.
Our clients are able to use their personal budgets or other types of funding to pay for their place on the course. We accept people referred by GP’s, by charities and also self-referring individuals who are not recieving support from their local health authorities.
Healthcare Professionals can either:
- Book a full course for up to 15 people solely for referring your clients/team OR
- Refer individual clients onto our courses that run throughout the year
100% of our clients have transitioned from ‘below average’ body image and wellbeing scales to ‘average’ levels. Take a look at our Social Impact Report to see our results.

Project DARE! Body Adoration is often lucky enough to receive funding to enable people to take the course who wouldn’t otherwise be able too. Hence, there may be limited funded places available on each block of sessions. If you think you might be eligible for a funded place please contact Ursula Joy 0750753929 or firstname.lastname@example.org
“I wake up in the morning, before (the Dare Workshop) I feel really down & think of depressing thoughts. But since I came to the workshop I’ve been using the cards and I give myself an 8 and when I focus on the number 8 it lets my day go more easier, more happy, I feel more confident” Loy, Darer
The workshop fits like a glove within the PSHE section of the national curriculum. All our workshop leaders are enhanced DBS checked and have vast experience of working with young adults and vulnerable people including youngsters and adults with learning disabilities or mental health issues.
If you are booking on behalf of a school you can select the students in your year group/s who you think would benefit the most. Key stages 2 and 3 are where many issues concerning self-esteem begin to surface and if not explored can result in unhealthy core beliefs.
Groups of 12 – 30 participant’s, works the best.
