Springboard Family Support Project
Everybody needs help at some point in their lives. In Springboard, we support children, young people and parents.
We will arrange for you to talk to someone from our team. This person will be your keyworker. That means they will meet with you regularly, listen to what you are worried about and help you to find solutions to any problems you might have. You might be worried about school, family relationships, friendships or your own mental health. Your keyworker will spend time with you – finding things that make you feel better and helping you to deal with the things that worry you. We can also work with your parents/carers so that they can find better ways to deal with arguments and stress in the family. We work closely with other services and can build a team of supporters for you.

Age range: Up to 18
Time: That depends - sometimes a lot of people contact us and other times, our waiting list is short. We will try to return a call within a week to ten days.
Do I need my parents permission if I'm under 18?: yes
How do I connect with your service?
You can contact us directly – you do not need a referral. However, if you would like a parent or a teacher to contact on yoru behalf, that’s absolutely fine. We will need your parent’s consent to offer you support. This can also be a way of finding support for other people in your family.
How have your services changed due to Coronavirus?
Unfortunately, face-to-face meetings and groups are not happening so much. However, we are available every day by phone or we can have a Whatsapp video call. If you really need to see someone, we can arrange that while still keeping a 2 metre distance.
At the moment, we are mostly working from home but you can reach us on any of these numbers between 9a.m. and 5p.m.
