In July 2019 Scottish Government confirmed the provision of £12 million pounds of funding across Scotland’s Local Authorities to support the delivery of the access to school counselling service.
The delivery of the service will enable children and young people to be supported more efficiently and effectively with issues affecting their mental health and wellbeing. The provision will help school staff to engage children and young people with appropriate support services from within their local communities and at an early stage.
We would like to invite third sector organisations who support young people’s emotional wellbeing to come along to a session to find out more about the proposed model for Fife’s commissioned service of third sector recurring grants.
Our programme for this session includes:
