for Children and Young People in Medway

why the need
Medway recognises that many young people who attended secondary school have emotional and social issues outside of school that present as difficult behaviour within schoolWhy the need?
why the need3
Some of these children may be excluded from school and consequently have a disrupted school experience

Some of those excluded children may go on to have a ‘disrupted life’

Why the need?
in t he beginning
Onside began as a partnership between

Medway Council and The Peter DeHaan Trust

Its purpose is to provide a therapeutic intervention that is intended to support

young people with high emotional needs to

remain in school and achieve their full academic potential

In the Beginning
the vision
To provide a therapeutic service for vulnerable young people in Medway where a range of therapeutic interventions might be provided

To provide a psychological safe place

for young people

To provide a place of safety for young people experiencing mental health issues or social difficulties

The Vision
the aim
To provide a holistic therapeutic team at Silverbank Park; which supports the most vulnerable young people within the educational system in Medway.

To support and enable schools to develop their own in-house therapeutic teams so that young people can remain in mainstream schools and enjoy and achieve.

Support system which provides the following interventions:

the service8
The Service

Onside aims to be an early intervention opportunity that will recognise, address and prevent emotional issues from developing further.

Onside does not have a threshold – a young person who attends a Medway school and wants to engage with the service can.

the service9
Assessment is ‘swift’. We aim to offer an assessment session within 1 working week and sooner in an emergency

We are able to provide extra capacity by offering ‘training placements’ through partnerships with local therapeutic training programmes

The Service
  • Staff engage with the young person at their own level, allowing them to access support that is meaningful for them, and that allows them to make a difference to their lives.
  • Parents can also access Onside.

Onside is providing therapeutic support to 10 primary schools through the TaMHS Project

TaMHS provides Individual and Group Therapy

This provision has been made possible because of 2 year government funding (ends July 2011)
