We work together to effectively meet the personal, social (wellbeing) and academic needs of our children and families. This includes:

  • Referrals to other agencies that can support families, such as; Early Help, CAMHS, Future Steps, Building Bloxx, debt counselling agencies, bereavement counselling, employment and education opportunities and the provision of Foodbank vouchers and parcels.

  • A hardship fund which can help provide clothes, bedding and basic equipment for those families are facing particular hardship.

  • Educating children and families on how to look after their own mental health and well-being.

  • We help identify barriers to learning and attendance and can suggest practical strategies and interventions to help overcome these issues.

  • A safe environment for children and adults to discuss sensitive issues or areas of concern.
