Here at CRC we have dedicated staff who can offer a range of support to young people. They are all based in The Hub when on-site and are accessible face to face, by phone, email and online via Teams. This team can also make referrals to external agencies to provide specialist support when required, such as counselling or mental health services.
By providing early help and support to young people and their families we can work together to find the most appropriate solutions to prevent issues escalating and to ensure that our students are safe.
Our Student Advisers are available to speak to via drop-in appointments or 1:1 scheduled appointments. They can assess you for financial support whilst at college and can offer advice and support on welfare related issues including: mental health issues; sexual health; stress; relationship issues; bullying; housing; benefits; young carer; anger management; and can provide support and advice on other matters.
All staff at Cambridge Regional College are trained in Safeguarding. In addition to this we have a dedicated team of experienced Safeguarding Officers who lead on all Child Protection and Safeguarding issues.
The safety and welfare of children, young people and adults – or safeguarding – is everybody’s responsibility.

E-Safety – More than ever children and young people are online. The internet can provide great opportunities to learn and interact with friends, but it is essential that we teach young people to be ‘virtually street wise’ and to keep safe. There are ways to protect your children with the internet.

A new website www.actearly.uk has been developed by the Home Office so anyone can share their concerns in confidence. It informs people about how to report if you’re worried someone close is expressing extreme views or hatred, which could lead them to harming themselves or others.
