Here at Liberty we are committed to supporting your physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing in any way, shape or form so we have put together some resources that we think might be helpful to our young people.
Our staff are trained in drugs awareness and sexual health (and we can give out condoms if you need them through out GetIt scheme), so you can talk to us if you want help and advice on these things.
Please contact Emily, our Head of College and Safeguarding Lead, Mel, our Wellbeing Lead and Lead DDSL, or Lauren, our Pastoral Lead and LSCO, if you need support for any reason.
We have a dedicated safeguarding team who meet regularly and support all our students with any issues raised, see below for the members of staff that are a part of this team:
|Emily||Head of College, Mental Health First Aider and Safeguarding Lead|
|Lauren||Learning Support Coordinator and Pastoral Lead|
|Mel||Wellbeing Lead, Mental Health First Aider, and Lead DDSL|
|Caz||Office Manager and Mental Health First Aider|
We also have trained mental health first aiders that are there to support both our learners and staff with any help or guidance needed.
