The links below will take you to a number of different websites providing support and advice on a wide range of issues.
The Government have launched a new website aimed at parents, teachers and school leaders to give practical advice on protecting young people from extremism and radicalisation. This was officially launched in January 2016 by the Education secretary Nicky Morgan. The website can be found at www.educateagainsthate.com.
‘Rise Above’ tackles topics that young people are most concerned about, such as puberty, relationships, alcohol, self-harm, smoking, contraceptive choices, drugs, body confidence, peer pressure and mental health.
