We support young people via contact with their school. How do we continue this work? 

The BACP recommends that such organisations create a specific contract for remote working with the school. Any continuation of support would need to include "appropriate safeguards", such as how to get in touch with the designated safeguarding lead and making sure you know the young person’s exact location at the start of a remote session. New contracts with schools must also take into account the unique pressures remote working places on practitioners.
