What is it?

A support service for young people and a chance to learn about issues that affect your well being. Some of the things we have supported young people with are issues like bullying, relationships, drugs, healthy eating, getting healthy, staying healthy, work, families and much, much more. 

Do you have to tell anyone else?

No, what you talk to us about stays in the room. The only time we may have to break your confidentiality is when you or another person is in danger of serious harm and we would discuss this with you before doing this. 

Who can we talk to?

You can talk privately with any of the team or you can simply come and join in as part of a group. The team are a youth worker and a school nurse, usually Clare Tucker and Sandra Williamson. 

When?

Monday lunch times 

Where?

In the Flexible Learning Centre - H12.  (Very rarely we have to move rooms so if you can’t find us please ask Mrs Alford and she will direct you to the right place). 

What do I need to do?

Just drop in. 

What about my lunch?

If your visit means you will need to go into lunch early or later we can give you a special lunch pass.
