Location

Situation

east to west were originally a schools charity providing holidays, assemblies and after schools clubs. It was during one of these holidays, that one young person started a conversation about what was going on in their life. When the holiday ended, the young person was left holding the conversation with no-one to finish it with. east to west's response was Relational Support Work - a place in schools for children and young people to take their troubles, challenges and difficulties.

Solution

east to west provide space for hundreds of children, young people and families to talk about the issues and challenges they're facing - it does this across the school age ranges - from Reception (4yo) to Upper Sixth (18). It is in this space, that those we support and work with have the freedom to talk, share and unburden themselves of what is going on. east to west help them to understand and develop strategies and techniques to help them face and overcome these challenges and face the future
