The last couple of years have been tough for the community and especially challenging for children and young people of all ages in Sandwell. Some have been more affected than others by anxiety, bereavement, stress, and a host of other complex problems for young hearts and minds to deal with.
If you know of anyone between the ages of 5-18 who would benefit from some 1-1 counselling to help support them, please contact one of the organisations below. No matter how much love and care a young person has from family, friends, and school sometimes a skilled professional can be the key to unlocking the problem and helping them move on. There is no charge as it is funded by Sandwell Council although children and young people will need to be assessed as requiring the service.
