We have adapted our services to offer befriending online and via telephone.
Positive Transitions Service: Support for children, young people and families
This service offers one-to-one and group support for children, young people and families that focuses on enhancing transitions, developing stronger relationships at schools, and increasing self-esteem and confidence.
Our matching process is very thorough, as the most important part of this service is for the young person and our volunteers to connect.
- Support those who are disengaged or disengaging from school and below average in attainment level
- Improve low self-esteem and positive relationships
- Support those affected by parental substance use
