Safe Space to Talk for Residential Workers - Kibble: Specialist services & support for young people facing adversity
Posted: April 21, 2020

To support the dedicated residential workers going above and beyond to support those in our community during this time, we’re offering a Safe Space to Talk.

During the COVID-19 crisis, it’s natural to feel worried, upset or overwhelmed at times. To show our support we’ve set up a free, confidential support line for residential workers who are supporting some of the more vulnerable members of our society. One-to-one telephone calls or Skype sessions will be led by trained therapists who work within our Specialist Intervention Services Team (SIS).

The team provides a range of therapeutic support and intervention to children and young people at Kibble, their families and staff, with a tailored approach that meets the needs of each individual. The staff are trained in psychology and counselling, and a range of therapies including cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectal behavioural therapy and play therapy.

The phone line will operate on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am – 6pm, and Thursday’s from 12pm – 8pm. Appointments may also be available at weekends where needed.
