If you have a problem, don’t keep it to yourself! Are you worried about any of the following?
If the answer is YES – Don’t keep it to yourself – ask for help.

It can sometimes be difficult to speak to an adult about how you are feeling.
You might think that an adult will not understand. THEY WILL LISTEN
You may think that they will not believe you. THEY WILL BELIEVE YOU
You may be scared that they will tell other people who you do not want to know. THEY WILL ONLY TELL SOMEONE WHO CAN HELP
You might think they have not got time to talk to you. THEY WILL ALWAYS MAKE TIME TO TALK
It’s better to talk to someone.
Ignoring your worries or concerns could make them worse.
Talking to someone will begin to tackle your worries and concerns.
You only have to share information that you want to share.
Telling someone will begin to help you.
What will happen if I talk to someone? Our Welfare Officer will know what to do and how to help.
Our Welfare Officer cannot promise to keep the information you share a secret. However, she will keep it CONFIDENTIAL. This means that they will have to tell only the person or people who can help.
When you talk to the Welfare Officer, ask her to explain who she needs to speak to and why. This may include Social Services or the Police in an emergency if our Welfare Officer thinks you may come to more harm or are in danger. This is to help you and ensure that you are safe.
