Operation Encompass

operation encompass riverside college

In conjunction with Cheshire Police, Riverside College is involved in a new initiative called Operation Encompass. The purpose of Operation Encompass is to safeguard and support children and young people who have been involved in, heard or witnessed a domestic abuse incident. Following such an incident, young people will often arrive at College distressed, upset, worried and unprepared. Operation Encompass aims to ensure that appropriate College staff (called Key Adults) are made aware early enough to support children and young people in a way that means they feel safe and included.

At Riverside College our Key Adults are Thalia Bell, Paula Mitchell and Anna Hopwood

This is a valuable initiative that means we can continue to support and help children and families within our school community when they need it the most.

You can find our more by visiting www.operationencompass.org or by contacting our Key Adult.
