We look forward to a long relationship with www.theplace2be.org.uk
The Place2Be works inside schools to give children aged 5-13 a voice, enabling to work through and overcome problems such as neglect, family break-down, domestic violence, and bereavement.
Our specialist, evidence-based approach includes helps young children to cope with distressing situations today, but also helps to prevent more serious mental health and behavioural problems in later life. When children are happier and less preoccupied with problems, they find it easier to learn, and their educational chances are improved, with knock-on benefits throughout their adult life.
Today there are place2be teams based in 172 primary and secondary schools across the UK. They are supporting 58,000 children, often in areas of great deprivation, through a combination of longer term 1:1 counselling and a lunchtime self-referral service, where any child can request an appointment to talk to a qualified, experienced counsellor.
We want a world where every child grows up with prospects, not problems.
