Programme manager: Mary Ireland
The Children's Society in Solihull have been commissioned by Solihull Children and Young People's Trust to deliver various services for children, young people, families, schools and other organisations within the borough.
Our active involvement work aims to ensure that children and young people (aged 5-19 years, and up to 25 years for those with disabilities) are involved in the decision-making about services affecting them, that their views are heard and valued, and that they are supported in making positive contributions to their community.
We deliver anti–bullying and personal safety group work programmes in primary and secondary schools, addressing issues of cyber bullying and internet safety, racism and discrimination, relationships at home, and peer support for those who are vulnerable to bullying.
The programmes aim to raise awareness of these issues and improve self-esteem and confidence of those affected.
The Youth Inclusion Support Programme (YISP) seeks to prevent offending and anti-social behaviour in 8-13 year olds. It works with a multi-agency Panel to reduce the negative factors contributing to anti–social behaviour, and to assist in keeping children and young people in full-time education. It also provides support for parents and carers.
