Group Work Offer

We are offering 7 group work modules led by an experienced qualified youth worker with each module being 4 weekly lessons which take place within school time. The work delivered is informal and involves activities and discussion. The work is aimed at young people that need support to prevent escalation in their behaviours. You may have already started an Early Help process to support them. 

This offer is part of our service delivery and carries no charge. You need to:

  • Select a module
  • Identify a group of young people (4 to maximum of 6) you think would benefit from this support.  Some modules might be better in single gender groups but you know your students and who might work best together
  • Ensure the young person and their parent/carer are aware of this referral
  • Be able to provide a suitable room with a regular timeslot to deliver the group work and be able to organise the young people to attend.
  • Complete the School Group Work referral form (DOCX, 45 KB) with all relevant information and return to tys@warwickshire.gov.uk
