Our third teacher is trained with four further teachers funded !

Our third teacher has completed the First Aid for Mental Health Instructor training course! Moseley Park/West Midlands: Sarah Glover decided to do the training as she has multiple students opening up to her about their struggles, ranging from social anxiety to suicidal thoughts. Although Sarah said that she has provided a safe space for them to open up, she expects the training to give her the skills to help them more confidently and she also plans to spread awareness in the school. Sarah plans to train around 60-75 pupils at first. She will be targeting 6 form students to enable […]

Jessie and Helen’s Dark Peak Trail Run for R World/13th June.

Message from Jessie: On the 13th of June me and my mum (Jessie Burn and Helen Cressey) are taking part in a 12k trail run starting in Hayfield in the Peak District. This will be my first running event and the latest in a long list for my mum. We thought it would be a great opportunity to raise some money for R World.

R World partners with Gillingham Anchorians Hockey Club and funds teacher.

We are so pleased to have formed a partnership with Gillingham Anchorians Hockey Club thanks to Harry McDonald, Head of Junior coaching who was a friend of Robbie’s, both at school and university.

We are particularly impressed with the fabulous tracksuits displaying our logo and are looking forward to working with the club in the future!

His limitless potential, boundless energy and his gentle soul were lost to us forever. There are many ways in which depression can materialise in people and so it’s important to be aware of all signs. In Robbie’s case it was a quick deterioration.  When lockdown began, Robbie, like […]
