The Place2Be was established in 1994 in response to increasing concern about the extent and depth of emotional and behavioural difficulties displayed in classrooms and playgrounds.
Today, we are an innovative growing charity, currently working with 128 schools across the UK, supporting a child population of around 40,000 – often in areas of great deprivation.
By 2010, we aim to be working with 190 schools supporting 80,000 children with problems such as bereavement, family breakdown, domestic violence, trauma and bullying.
By 2017 we hope to reach 150,000 children across 25 localities.
Our mission Our mission is to enable therapeutic and emotional support to be provided to children in schools based on a practical model backed up by research.
