The revised Welsh school and community-based counselling toolkit was published in June 2020.

The original 2011 toolkit was a joint collaboration between the Welsh Government and BACP. This revised version has also been developed with input from  BACP and in close collaboration with a working group comprising counselling leads and service providers from local authorities across Wales.

It is designed to provide practical support for counsellors, managers of counselling services and those with day-to-day responsibility for the promotion of emotional wellbeing in schools, ensuring they have the information they need to provide a high-quality service, delivering value for money and improved outcomes for children and young people.
