A charity which supports the health and well-being of children, young people and families in Kirklees has organised a series of free workshops for school stlogo.pngaff and parents/carers.

Northorpe Hall Child & Family Trust works closely with the NHS and Kirklees Council’s health and care services, with its staff and volunteers providing essential support services in the local area.

This includes providing training within the education setting to help staff better understand and support young people’s mental and emotional health.

Free workshops offered by the Trust for school and college staff explore topics including ‘Introduction to children and young persons’ mental health’, ‘Introduction to self-harm’ and ‘Understanding attachment theory’.

The Trust has also organised workshops for parents and carers, such as an Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) Awareness Session, in-person ‘Chill ‘N’ Chat’ peer support sessions and others including ‘Exploring loss and grief’, ‘Maintaining positive emotional well-being’, ‘Supporting sleep’ and ‘The teenage brain’.
