1-1 Mentoring Support:  This support is available, at no cost, to secondary schools and settings across the city, who work with young people aged 11- 18. 

The team have supported young people on a 1-1 basis since 2001. As mentioned on the main page the approach used by the team is in line with the Leeds Practice Model. This allows the team to work with the young people in a resilience focused way.  We will support any young person who is: 

  • Showing signs of risky health behaviours including self-harm; drug and alcohol misuse; child sexual exploitation; harmful sexual behaviour
  • Showing signs of anxiety, or depression
  • Needing support with increasing confidence, resilience and social skills
  • Showing signs of poor emotional health and wellbeing
  • Showing a decrease in attendance and attainment or has a history of low attendance and attainment
  • Showing difficulties in identifying and establishing healthy relationships

Due to the current Covid 19 pandemic the team have expanded the referral criteria to include NEET and Covid related attendance issues.

Firstly may we say THANK YOU to everyone who is working hard during this time to keep children and young people happy, learning, laughing, active and calm at this time of great uncertainty!

We are keen to share tools and resources as best we can, to support children’s wellbeing and education over this period of uncertainty. With this in mind, we have produced a range of advice and free resources for schools, as well as resources for parents/carers in your school.

These resources are updated every week so please check them on a regular basis.
