Francesca is our Place2Be School Project Manager. Place2Be is a charity working in schools to improve the emotional wellbeing of young people. There is a Place2Be room inside the school were young people can go to express and think about their worries, through talking and creative work. Haddy supports young people by helping them to find ways of coping with difficulties, so they can focus on their learning and building friendships. Parents and carers of young people in Place2Be schools can access free advice, resources and services as part of our mental health support for the whole school. Find out more here.
