Troubled young people who are struggling with behaviour or academic performance issues are telling us that something is not right in their life. Working one to one is the most effective way of developing the trust and the rapport that is needed to change their lives. We work one to one, coaching and mentoring, to help young people to become the best version of themselves.
Sometimes a key message is better in a small discussion group. It needs to be led by a subject matter expert who can create the most appropriate tone and context. That is what we do.
Assemblies of all sizes - from whole school to year group - with hybrid tools to allow online streaming and broadcasting. Bringing assembly time to life. From ten minutes to one hour.
Risk managing circumstances in a way that follows the training and guidance of the police. Looking to mitigate harm at the earliest opportunity, documenting options, decisions and rationale in the most robust and reliable way.
Using conflict resolution skills to de-escalate long term disagreement and toxic rivalry. Implementing restorative justice skills to help people to feel heard, acknowledged and to get issues and events properly and permanently resolved.
Looking at the code of conduct and the gravity matrix around behaviours. Helping schools to implement transparent and consistent disciplinary policy that dove-tails - where necessary - into other services and the criminal justice system.

Female genital mutilation is a difficult and specialist topic. It is highly emotive. It is graphic. If it is presented in the wrong way it can be traumatic. We provide a strong fundamental understanding of this important subject - and we present it in a way that is age appropriate and welcomes people with no previous experience or understanding.
We draw on professional experience of investigating and prosecuting HBV cases. We have safeguarded real victims from HBV circumstances. We put a real world context around a complex issue.
High strength THC is the wolf in sheep's clothing, harming our communities on a day to day level. What children and young people generally believe about cannabis is dangerously flawed. We help young people to understand without falling back on scare stories.
We also provide support and knowledge on MDMA, cocaine, heroin, amphetamines, prescription drug abuse (including benzodiazepines such as Xanax) and hallucinogens such as LSD and magic mushrooms.
County Lines is the business model preferred by UK suppliers of illicit and illegal psychoactive substances. It is a form of criminal exploitation that is every bit as harmful as the drugs that are being sold. We help young people to understand what County Lines is and how to avoid becoming ensnared. We also offer advice, guidance and support to young people who want to escape from this trap.
Phil Priestley is the author of two published books on the topic of County Lines and Organised Criminal and Sexual Exploitation of Young People (CCE and CSE). You can find out more about these titles here.
This is a problem in every single school in the UK today. Teenagers who are not 18 creating indecent and illegal imagery of themselves, which they make the mistake of putting into the public domain. The offences of creating, possessing, sharing and showing indecent imagery of children are very real with numerous and far reaching consequences. We talk about the reality of this issue as we educate young people to avoid the mistakes that are so easily made.
We cover issues including consent, healthy relationships, domestic abuse, violence, the carrying of weapons, gambling and gaming addiction, online safety and more. We adhere closely to the most up to date guidance offered by the Department for Education.
