Petition Provide funding for one-to-one PSHE mentorship in secondary schools
The Government should provide additional funding to secondary schools to enable one-to-one coaching by mentors. These mentors could support students as part of their PSHE education, using their own life experiences.
There are many issues such as peer to peer abuse, revenge porn and harassment that are traumatising teenagers. Many young people don’t have people they can relate to or confide in. They need to be educated on a deeper level as the national curriculum isn’t touching on real life situations enough. The youth need to know about the consequences of these issues for the survivors and offenders. If they hear it from people that have actually experienced these things they are more likely to listen.
