We recognise that relationship difficulties affect children and young people too. This service is designed to support children & young people through the process of:
- Parental divorce and separation
- New step-parents/siblings
- Difficulties in relationships generally (at school, with peers, with parents)
- Loss and bereavement
- School transition
- Witnessing domestic violence in the family home
Who do we offer the service to?
The service is offered to children aged 5-18 years of age. Appointments will usually be made within Relate’s Birmingham Centre. We use a range of creative interventions when working with children and young people.
Confidentiality and Safety
Relate offers private and confidential help to our clients. We will not normally give your name or any information from or about you to anyone outside the organisation unless we have reason to believe that someone, especially a child, is at risk of serious harm.
Violence and abuse is an issue for many young people who come to us for help with their family relationships. We know about this and you can talk to us about it if it is a problem in your life.
Relate Birmingham works in accordance with ***Safeguarding Board Guideline***.
