Update from BEAM & workshops for parents

21 May 2021 Last updated at 05:42

With the restrictions easing, we do not have any plans to re-open as a drop-in service currently.  We will continue to offer telephone call backs as well as virtual face to face appointments.  All support should be requested via the website.

You may be aware we are offering limited face to face appointments from our Wellington venue.  These are strictly on an appointment-only basis.  As you can imagine, these are in high-demand given the limited slots we have, particularly the after-school appointments.  To ensure as many face to face sessions can be offered as possible, we will be booking appointments during school time.

Workshops for parents/carers

We are pleased to let you know we are now offering virtual sessions for parents & carers around common emotional well-being topics.  These sessions aim to help parents & carers support their young people at home.  The sessions are detailed below, and do not need to be booked.  Please share with those you feel may benefit.
