Our Place Support is a Community Interest Company which was established in 2011.
Our aim is to help people make positive changes in their lives through access to Mentoring, Advice and Personal Development.
We operate a Community Hub in the center of Sutton Coldfield which works to bring vital advice and support services into the local community. We currently have over 17 organisations delivering a variety of support from Our Community Hub.
Our Mentoring Scheme offers 1-2-1 support for individuals with social, emotional and mental health challenges. Typical issues include low mood, anxiety, stress, self harm, bullying and managing loss/change. We support children from aged 6 through to adults. This project also delivers support to children in schools on topical issues such as Transition to Secondary School, Mental Health, Gang Prevention and Body Safety (Preventing Child Sexual Exploitation).
Our Advice Cafe provides weekly drop in sessions every Friday at our Community Hub and offers information and support on a wide variety of issues including benefits, benefit appeals, housing, employment issues, unemployment and legal matters. There is no restriction on who can access this support.
The Our Place Training Scheme offers Accredited training for Professionals. This includes workshops on Social, Emotional and Mental Health Well-being, a Level 3 Award in Mentoring Practice and a wide variety of Safeguarding focused courses.
Training courses are delivered by trained facilitators with experience of working within the fields of Mentoring and Safeguarding. Our courses are ideal for those in a Mentoring, Counselling, Pastoral or Management role.
By accessing our training scheme for your professional development you are also investing in the sustainability of our community based Mentoring and Advice services.
