The Befriending project offers one-to-one befriending support.

The sessions take place during school but can progress into the community once established. Full training and ongoing support are provided.

The project Pupils Know How is a series of groups that adapt to each individual school and its pupils. Each one is designed by the young people themselves, based on aims they have identified during our work with them.
