* Emotional Health & Wellbeing Service- Greater Manchester & Lancashire

Our work includes: the delivery of emotional health & wellbeing programmes, parenting courses, pupil support within schools and communities to engage young people in a conversation to support and build their emotional resilience, offering practical skills to manage negative thoughts and feelings
We aim to provide a safe, secure and nurturing environment in which young people feel secure and can discover their value and worth as individuals and gain a sense of their own self. They are also encouraged to participate fully in the decision-making process in the home and are given opportunities to help and support one another. This is achieved by stressing the positive roles of care and focuses on the needs and rights of the young people.
We adopt a flexible approach to all aspects of care and aim to work closely and in partnership with parents and carers as appropriate.
