Operation Encompass
Shebbear College staff are Operation Encompass trained. Operation Encompass provides an efficient, confidential channel of communication between police forces and Key Adults within schools.

Everything we do protects children today and prevents abuse tomorrow, to transform society for every childhood.

We’re here for all young people, whatever you’re going through.

Young Minds
We’re leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges. We’re here to make sure they get the best possible mental health support and have the resilience to overcome life’s difficulties.

We provide confidential support and advice to young people struggling with thoughts of suicide, and anyone worried about a young person through our helpline, HOPELINEUK.

The Samaritans
Every six seconds, we respond to a call for help. No judgement. No pressure. We’re here for anyone who needs someone. We’re working together to make sure fewer people die by suicide.
