What difference does Place2Be make in your child’s school?

Place2Be is a national charity working in over 235 UK schools to improve the confidence and emotional wellbeing of children. We help children to develop resilience by supporting them when they are experiencing challenging life issues and helping them to develop self-confidence and lifelong coping skills. When they are supported in this way, they are able to learn more easily ad that means less worry for parents.

How we help children

All pupils can find help with friendship issues and other worries by choosing to visit Place2Talk. These short lunchtime sessions are open to individuals and to groups. Place2Be also works with children one-to-one and in small groups, offering regular time-tabled support for those who will benefit most. The school will often refer children for this service.

We always obtain written consent from parents or carers before working with children.

How we help families

We routinely meet with parents to discuss and concerns they may have about their children. A number of Place2Be School also has A Place for Parents, offing adults counselling support for any issues they may have.

How we help schools

Place2Be also supports teachers and school staff members to think through emotional needs of children and advises and supports the school leadership which helps the whole school to thrive.

How Place2Be works

There is a special Place2Be room inside the school where children can go to express and think about their worries, though talking, creative work and play. Adults that are qualified to work therapeutically, called School Project Managers, support this process, helping to find new ways of coping with difficulties so they don’t get in the way of friendships or learning.

Times when we’re especially useful

There are times when children feel particularly sad, confused, fearful or angry, due to, for example, family changes such as separation or illness, or even the death of a much-loved pet. Some children become withdrawn; others may become demanding or challenging in their behaviour: that’s when having Place2Be in schools is especially helpful.

Who is eligible for Place2Be?

Any child requiring emotional support for any reason.
