That’s why we want to help support them.Here’s a quick overview of what we can offer,but please contact us to discuss the options.
One-to-one counselling
At the heart of our youth services is one-to-one support for children and young people affected by issues such as
family breakdown, bullying and peer relationships,bereavement, the formation of new families or the
absence of a family member in their life. A study of school-based counselling found that 90% of teachers said that it made a positive difference to students.

Relate has a wealth of experience in providing SRE to children and young people. We enable them to
understand relationship issues and to think about what itmeans to construct healthy and respectful relationships.

Relate also provides interpersonal and emotional intelligence training for children and young people which
includes communication and relationship skills covering subjects such as, ‘Basics of a Relationship’, ‘Getting Together’, ‘Breaking Up’ and ‘Be a Buddy’. Relate offers a range of courses that have been mapped to Key Stage 3 and 4 PSHE.
