Training sessions

Life’s Questions
An opportunity to open up and have a conversation about life’s challenges such as death, loss, funerals and grief. This session can be facilitated as an assembly or in small groups and is seen as a proactive approach to empowering teenagers and young people to discuss in a non-judgemental space. The session involves discussion and listening to others’ experiences and thoughts and developing a deeper understanding of life’s experiences which will encourage emotional resilience and the ability to support others now and in the future.
