Who's in Your Corner - Newcastle Safeguarding Children's Board Annual Conference
Who's in your corner is this year’s Newcastle Safeguarding Children Board’s (NSCB) Conference. The theme this year is Mental Health and Wellbeing which was identified as a priority at last year’s conference. The event is for young people aged 13 – 21 years of age. We have a number of young people who are keynote speakers presenting their experiences and we have planned, with support from young people, interactive workshops. By popular demand we are continuing to have a ‘question and answer time’ which gives young people an opportunity to ask adult decision makers questions about mental health services.
It would be really helpful if you could promote this event with your students and colleagues. The event is in the school holidays and the aim is to get more young people to attend the event at Newcastle Civic Centre on 30th August, 2018 as possible. Any promotion would be appreciated before Schools break up for their summer holidays..

Newcastle Schools Bursary Scheme
Secondary school staff should note that the online application for the Newcastle Schools Bursary Scheme is now available at https://www.newcastle.gov.uk/education-and-learning/benefits-and-educational-grants/bursary-scheme-for-16-19-year-olds
The purpose of the bursary scheme is to assist young people who are entering sixth form who may be suffering financial hardship. Details of eligibility criteria and the support that young people can access can also be found through the above link.
Schools that are part of the Newcastle scheme should ideally be promoting this support to young people who are considering entering their sixth form or remaining in the sixth form for a further year.
