Message from Sam...
  Ask Sam

As the school year comes to an end it can bring lots of changes with it, such as moving schools or thinking about making choices about your future. If you’re worried about these changes I’d really like to hear from you.

I read every letter but unfortunately can’t reply to everyone. If you need advice straight away, you can get help on the message boards or contact a ChildLine counsellor

Take care,
Sam
