31,599 children / young people rang child line 2011/2012 for help regarding bullying they were suffering from, shocking number and only the tip of an iceberg, but sadly so true of a world we live in.

A current focus with my business and ‘safer handling’ of children covers a more holistic approach to ‘handling’ – it’s not just about restraint. Children can develop their own coping techniques which included propensities to inflict harm upon themselves e.g. banging head on wall. These are signs I want education providers to start picking up on and helping develop our young people’s coping options. Joanne from Total Train
