PSHE - Support and advice information

If you are affected by any of the issues raised in PSHE lessons, don’t bottle it up – talk to someone; friends, family, your form tutor, SPL or any other trusted adult in college.

If you don’t feel comfortable talking to any of these people, then there are a huge number of agencies and organisations who can offer help, advice, support and guidance.  Some of them are listed below.

Survivors Assistance Network

The Survivors Assistance Network (SAN) provides free practical and emotional support to people affected by a terrorist incident. If you have been affected by an act of terror, as a witness, or losing a loved one, or having sustained injuries, SAN can help. Assistance is offered via telephone, email and face-to face-visits.
