Off the Record (OTR) Youth Counselling Croydon was founded in 1994 to provide free, independent and professional counselling for 14 – 25 year olds in the Croydon area. Since then the charity has expanded to include further areas of work including BME mental health work; a young carers service offering support to young people under 26 who are caring for a parent or sibling; a specialist counselling service for young refugees; online counselling and workshops; and our young people's counselling service in the boroughs of Sutton and Merton.
We work with an organisation called PIXL (Partners in Excellence), who provide a wide variety of educational resources and support teaching, learning and assessment across KS3 and KS4. They have produced some pamphlets, which parents /carers may find useful in supporting their children.
We hope that you find them useful.
