Description of the goods or services required

A School-based Children and Family Counselling and Emotional Wellbeing Service is required to support children attending East Lothian Council Primary Schools and their families. This school- based service will contribute, along with other existing services, to the development of the Education Service’s ‘Emotional Health and Wellbeing Strategy’. The main aim of the strategy will be to increase the capacity of children, parents/carers and staff to achieve improved emotional health and wellbeing.

East Lothian recognises that a number of children and their parents /carers face considerable challenges linked to poor mental health and emotional wellbeing. In order to address these challenges East Lothian recognises the need to build the resilience of families and children through increasing their personal capacity to resolve difficulties and problems.
