Previous experience of working in schools

YMCA Cambridgeshire & Peterborough has launched new in-school services for schools and partners to improve the physical, emotional and psychological well-being of young people.

Existing support channels are overwhelmed with demand, and the new YMCA Cambridgeshire & Peterborough offer provides a sustainable route for schools to continue to support pupils in the face of budget cuts.

The scheme has already seen huge success in Peterborough and Cambridgeshire, with over 32 schools signing up during the pilot year in 2015-16, enabling 231 children and young people to receive direct support across 1,780 hours of provision.

Quotes from teachers

Many thanks to you and your team for the workshop you held with our Health and Social Care learners. I received a lot of positive feedback from the learners on how useful the topic was for them. It has linked in very well with the unit they are completing on safeguarding.
