CheckPoint (The Children's Society)

What does CheckPoint do?

We're here to help children and young people:

Stay safe and healthy

Know their rights

Understand their responsibilities in the community - encouraging them to consider their choices and make informed decisions so they can achieve their full potential.

Our guiding philosophy, based on over 25 years of local experience, is to ensure that young people have immediate and straightforward access to independent help. We aim to promote your and other young people's safety, health, values, rights and responsibilities in the community so they are encouraged to reach their own decisions and consider your choices in order to achieve your full potential.

How we help

We offer numerous services that can help you .

For many young people, additional and more specialist support is required, and we have developed and grown a number of services to meet your needs. Our services can be accessed:

parents/foster carers
with the support of an already involved professional such as doctors, youth workers, social workers and so on.
