The following is a news story from Hafal’s Big Lottery-funded Young People’s Information Hub. To access the Hub please visit: http://www.hafal.org/hafal/yp_index.php
The Welsh Government is currently consulting on whether to expand the excellent school-based counselling service in Wales.
The Government’s White Paper consultation form on this issue contains a section which outlines proposals to expand the school-based counselling service so that “it places a duty upon local authorities to make reasonable provision for counselling services for registered pupils at secondary schools in their area and other young people aged 11-19 who belong to the local authority’s area.” (our italics).
Hafal’s Young People’s Information Hub has also produced a response to the consultation; we fully support plans to expand this excellent service.

Finally, the Hub and all Hafal staff would like to wish you a very happy Christmas and a healthy new year!
