A Red Balloon centre for South Yorkshire?

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Recently Meg Munn MP met Emma Foster from the Red Balloon charity to discuss proposals for one of their learner centres to be established in South Yorkshire. Red Balloon learner centres support bullied children who find it difficult to continue in school because of their experience. The meeting followed an event held in Parliament earlier in the year, which briefed MPs on the charity’s work.

Meg said:

“When children are bullied they can miss out on school and the education they need. The work Emma is doing investigating the possibility of setting up a Red Balloon learner centre in South Yorkshire is important. I’ll be helping Emma to find out more information, so she can explore further whether a local centre would help young people in our area.”

Red Balloon learner centres provide full-time education for children aged between 9 and 18, in a safe environment with an individual full-time academic, pastoral and therapeutic programme. Once students have regained their confidence and are able to cope, they are supported to return to mainstream school, further education or employment. The charity also operates Red Balloon of the Air, a virtual learning environment which is being used successfully in some areas without a Red Balloon learner centre.
