Quarriers Wellbeing – Support and Help for young people aged 10 to 18

Quarriers Resilience for Wellbeing Service works with young people aged between 10 and 18 to improve their wellbeing. We provide quality support that transforms lives every day. We provide services for adults with a disability, families and children, people affected by epilepsy, and young adults.

Our focus is to deliver early intervention and prevention methods by providing a holistic model of support to improve and promote emotional health and wellbeing. This enables young people to become more resilient, confident and to take ownership to enhance and sustain their emotional health needs thus empowering them to thrive and attain within their school and communities.

Our interventions are time limited thus enabling the children and young people to put their learned coping strategies into practice, promoting resilience and therefore not building reliance. We do this by using the Wellbeing Indicators identified on the completed referral form and further initial assessment of the child or young person, this is then used to formulate a plan and tailor a package of support.

Support available

The support offered is:

  • Focused one-to-one sessions
  • Targeted small group work
  • Drop-in sessions in school and the local community
  • Parental guidance and support

Quarriers accepts referrals from Pastoral Staff as well as operating a self-referral and a supported self-referral system. To self-refer, the child or young person is able to make direct contact either via attending the drop in sessions or via text/phone. They will then meet with their Quarriers worker and will be supported to complete a self-referral and commence the assessment process and together they will formulate a plan and tailor a package of support.

A supported referral enables all other professionals to signpost children and young people to the service using the methods above or supporting the young person to complete a self-referral form. Using this method of referral enables the child or young person to take ownership and responsibility of their own emotional health and wellbeing and will result in a richer engagement of the interventions that takes place. The child or young person will always be encouraged and supported to share with their parent/guardian and their pastoral teacher in the case of a self-referral that they are accessing the Resilience for Wellbeing Service.
