iCan programme

The iCan programme is a one-to-one and/or group work, trauma informed programme which focuses on male adolescents aged 13-16 (school year 9-11) who are disengaging in their communities. This could be because they live, or have lived, in a home that lacks stability, have been traumatised by domestic abuse or have unhealthy relationships with their peers or families.

This toolkit sets out the iCan approach which is flexible, person-centered and harnesses the strengths of young males, so they can go on to meet life’s challenges. This toolkit enables the programme to be delivered in a way which will support young people to build their resilience and support networks.

Rising Sun deliver the iCAN programme in Canterbury, Ashford, Shepway and Swale. Visit the Rising Sun website for more information or download the HeadStart iCan Toolkit below.

Oasis deliver the iCAN programme in Dover, Thanet, Maidstone and Tonbridge and Malling. To refer to Oasis please visit their website. 

The toolkit has been developed by Kent Domestic Abuse Consortium, through a pilot programme funded through Kent County Council.
