“We felt empowered to talk to the staff and see how they were doing and just make sure that everybody was looking out for one another.”

“That’s the kind of thing that I would really like to get in schools (…) at least one teacher or some teachers being trained in it (Solution Focus), so that they are able to awaken the passion in young people towards the approach.”

“I’d like people to genuinely listen to young people and treat them as an expert. And then give a young person a leading role (…) and take on what they have to say.”

Will Reed
