Listening People Final

"What Pete doesn't know about young people and loss isn't worth knowing."  Rachel Gardner

"The training was professional, insightful and perfectly pitched for our setting."  Joe Lowther, Kick London

School staff would love to have the time to sit down, uninterrupted and give quality time to a distressed student, but they must give priority to teaching.

ListeningPeople is one proven way in which youth leaders can take the pressure off the staff and begin to make a real difference in a local school by ‘listening’ to young people who are struggling with every day life issues, many of which are rooted in loss. We provide training and consultancy for churches and other youth organisations that want to be better equipped to listen to young people.

If you are interested in making an impact in your local school by training to be ListeningPeople do get in touch.

I have a passion for seeing young people get the support that they need and to find a voice to talk about their experiences.

It dawns on you quite suddenly that life is never, ever going to be the same again, that the whole world has changed in a moment.
