Safe Space Southport
Southport; love it or hate it, this is your town & it's ours too. We're out to make a difference amongst your generation across Southport. In little pockets, from the yard at secondary school to youth clubs to our YouTube Channel, the 'Safe Space' project seeks to be a no-pressure place of safety where you can be listened to, inspired and motivated with others, as we explore together the big issues of life and faith. If we're in your school, any student is welcome come see us whether we're out in the yard with our gazebo or somewhere else - come and check in with our weekly wellbeing survey for a chance to win lollies and prizes! If we're not in your school yet or not running a community project near you, then we have a huge focus on our YouTube Channel and our Instagram anyway! See below for details of where you can find a Safe Space, and use this site as a place to hang out and discover more.
WE’RE HERE TO HELP, FOR FREE, BY CREATING A SAFE SPACE TO SHARE THE ISSUES OF LIFE AND FAITH WITH STUDENTS IN YOUR SCHOOL.
Learning from over twenty years of experience serving schools in the local area, Southport and Area Schools Worker Trust are shaping their current drive to best meet the needs of the younger generation of Southport and local educational establishments. We call it “Safe Space”.
We describe a “Safe Space” as a time or place set aside to journey with young people through issues of life & faith, whether they be spiritual, moral, social or cultural, in an environment that is very fun, non-threatening, and non- judgmental, giving young people safe time out to be loved & helped. Our most successful way of achieving this is in secondary schools is through lunchtime check-in sessions in the yard, run by trained and safeguarded SASW Trust staff and volunteers, all at no cost to the school or FE college.
