Place2Be is a national children’s charity working with 200 schools across the UK supporting over 75,000 children. They provide a safe space – the Place2Be room – where children can express their feelings through play, creative work and talking.
The Place2Be works with children, teachers and parents/carers too, providing therapeutic support to address social, emotional and behavioural problems.
The Place2Be helps build children’s confidence and self-esteem, enabling them to cope with difficult life events, establish friendships and focus in class. This in turn makes the school a happier place to be for all the children and the school staff.
The Place2Talk is a lunchtime drop in service where children can sign up either individually or with friends to talk for 15 minutes.

A Place for Parents
A Place for Parents is a free and confidential service for individuals. It offers time and space with a qualified professional to talk and think about feelings to do with them and their children, and to work out solutions that feel right.
‘My aim is to help parents and carers build confidence, develop ways of coping and better understand and communicate with their children, so that family life can be less of a struggle.’ says one Place2Be Parent Worker.
If you think A Place for Parents could be of benefit to you, or you would like to know more, speak to Katie who can help you decide if you would like some support.
