The Switch Project supports the young people of Wolverhampton through nurturing their social, emotional and mental health via early intervention, mentoring and advocacy. We believe that well-being, security and self-esteem are the essential building blocks in a young person’s development and key to their success in school.
Our vision is to reduce the need for exclusions within Wolverhampton secondary schools and our mission is to achieve this through the provision of therapeutic services that encourage the inclusion in school of young people whose social, emotional or mental health is causing concern and preventing them from achieving their full potential.
From our centre in Wolverhampton we have worked with young people in Wolverhampton schools, communities and other organisations for 10 years, offering support to those considered vulnerable to educational disengagement or are struggling to cope. Our aim is to provide a positive, supportive environment in which young people can gain new coping skills, build confidence in themselves and others, whilst ultimately returning back into mainstream education.
With our experience we have developed a range of therapeutic approaches which are aimed at enabling young people to increase social-emotional learning, improve attendance and help them to thrive, flourish and become happier within the school environment.
Our staff are ‘National Specialist Leaders in Behaviour and Attendance,’ as well as having teaching and learning, safeguarding, first aid and professional arts qualifications, plus Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks. We also complete the Wolverhampton City Council Quality Assurance and Compliance regulatory checks.
