Instant Messaging Service During School Hours

Home / Instant Messaging Service During School Hours

Speak Up Space are now offering support to ALL young people up to the age of 18 living in Staffordshire during the school day. You can talk to us about anything that’s important to you and we can listen, offer coping strategies, resources or signpost you to other services.

Your chat will be confidential and you can even choose to remain anonymous if you’d prefer.

Each chat will last 45 minutes, or less if you’d prefer, and you can book a chat here. We will ask you for a name, which can be your real name or a made up one, BUT you will need to use the same name when you join the chat so we know that it’s you. We will also ask you for an e-mail address so that we can confirm your appointment and send you a reminder.

You can book the appointments yourself OR you can ask a teacher or family member to do this for you.

The school time appointments will be available:

Monday (9:30am-2:30pm)

Tuesday (9:30am-2:30pm)

Wednesday (9:30am-2:30pm)

Thursday (9:30am-2:30pm)

Friday (9:30am-12:30pm)

Speak Up Space is part of North Staffs Mind and we’ve joined forces with partners Changes and Dove to secure this additional funding to provide this additional daytime support as part of the Winter Wellness Project 2020 to help us all to manage the extra pressures we are facing during the current Covid19 pandemic.  You can find out about the full offer by clicking here
