Towards the Light

It can be hard to see the light right now. There is a dark heavy feeling over the weeks, months, and possibly years ahead. Our schools are struggling with rising costs and increasing needs.

Emotionally Based School Avoidance

Back to school - but for some children and young people, it’s not that easy. For some, the New Year signals a fresh start and new challenges.

But for other students taking that step back into the classroom will be hugely overwhelming.
