H2H Supporting young people affected by parental divorce or separation.
By young people, for young people.
H2H offers young people (11-18yrs) who have been affected by parental divorce or separation support in two ways; individual and group support.
Individual support is carried out by Lifeguides (Young Adults, 18 to 25 years, who have also experienced parental divorce or separation). The Lifeguides will take the young people through a 6 week toolkit, on a one to one confidential basis, which will give both the Lifeguides and the young people new skills to increase their confidence and effective citizenship.
Group support is where young people help other young people.
What young people and youth workers have said!
“The best bit is speaking to the Lifeguide”
“We don’t know what you did with X, but it has certainly had a positive effect, they are now engaged to be married”

Hi, my name is Jenni Pringle and I volunteer as a Lifeguide for the local charity Heart to Heart. I am 24 years old and have been with Heart to Heart since 2010. My role is to meet up with a young person who has been affected by parental divorce or separation. I have personally experienced parental separation and the consequences attached. Due to my personal experience I understand the difficult emotions and thoughts to deal with when going through family break up. With the help of my own experiences and the Heart to Heart tool kit, I meet up with the young person for 1 hour every week for six weeks. Meetings take place in public, mostly in cafes or eating places and are informal. Discussions can often be challenging for the young person as they are required to talk about personal circumstances. However, all conversations are confidential and I am not there to judge, only to provide a listening ear and to show the young person how to cope well with a difficult time in their life. The meetings and tool kit are designed to increase the confidence in the young person and to provide a safe and relaxed space to deal with parental divorce/separation.
