Time Out Listening Line 
A Listening line has been set up for children and young people who want someone to talk to about issues such as: home/school life, friendships, and any worries they may be having about Coronavirus. The Listening Line is not a counselling service, it’s a safe space offering children and young people the opportunity to speak to an experienced Time Out worker, who regularly work with children and young people in schools and in the community. To access the listening line children and young people can send a text to 07418 311736 and one of Time Out’s project workers will call them back to arrange an appointment.

Safety for Children

We want our children to feel that they can access the same support with their safety and wellbeing at home as they can at school.  Below are some of the ways that children can access guidance and support from home.  It is important that children feel that they have someone to talk to about anything that is worrying them or making them feel unsafe and some of the links below are good to share with you children at home.
ChildLine runs a free, 24-hour phone, online and messaging service for children of all ages, and there are lots of useful self-help resources on their website which explains to children about how to keep safe. 
CEOP have a ‘make a report’ button on their website, where anyone can report anything that they have seen or experienced online that worries them.  There are also advice and games pages for children of different ages that can help remind children how to stay safe. https://www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre/
The National Online Safety website offers guides to parents and carers, which are a range of easy to use guides covering a range of popular social media, gaming and online platforms, advising parents on the benefits and risks of their children using them, and offering useful advice on taking sensible precautions to support their children to be safe while using them. https://nationalonlinesafety.com/
