At Ysgol y Deri (YYD), we recognise that there can be situations in which volunteers can make an appropriate and significant contribution to the work and services of our school.

The contribution of volunteers to the work of the school is especially valued and respected. YYD believes that by providing opportunities for volunteers to work alongside complex needs children, the volunteer will gain a range of skills and work experience. They will develop confidence and motivation to try different things and benefit the community they serve.

Funded by The Vale of Glamorgan Council, Barnardo’s provide an independent and confidential counselling service across high schools within the Vale of Glamorgan and within the Community.  This service is available to children and young people aged 10-19 years who live or attend school within the Vale of Glamorgan.

Counselling provide a space for children and young people to explore their thoughts and feelings, to talk about their life and their current situation.  It is a source of emotional support and  enables them to talk with someone who is neutral and impartial.

You can find out more information about this service and submit on-line referrals via their website

Children and young people are encouraged to complete self-referrals but parents/carers and professionals can also complete referrals on their behalf, with their consent.
