Kooth is a service for young people aged 11-18 that offers online counselling to Sefton pupils. They have provided the following video to explain their service and how to use it:
Their service is operating as normal and they are providing support, advice and guidance on COVID-19 for all young people. They also have the capacity to continue operating if they get an influx of young people signing up.
We have been asked to include (www.kooth.com) onto the school website and school social media platforms to promote them as much as we can.
Sophie Carr from Kooth- who delivered training to our staff in January is leaving. Her colleague Emily Hawley who has worked in Sefton before will be taking over from her. Further information below, or click here.
Right now in Britain there are children and young people who feel scared, unloved and unable to cope. The Children’s Society works with these young people, step by step, for as long as it takes.
We listen. We support. We act.
There are no simple answers so we work with others to tackle complex problems. Only together can we make a difference to the lives of children now and in the future. Because no child should feel alone.
Important update: Because of the coronavirus, we’ve had to make some changes to how Childline works. For now, you can only speak to a Childline counsellor online or on the phone from 9am – midnight. Click here for more information on this.
