The Friendship Saver Program is a 12 week program designed to improve peer relations, build friendships skills and empower children to manage conflict situations with independent problem solving and resilience. The program is consistent with The National Safe Schools framework and can be incorporated into a health and well-being curriculum. This program can be imbedded in a school alongside a restorative justice framework.

The 12 week program can be delivered in class by the class teacher, can be delivered by a school counsellor with small withdrawal groups or can be run as an incursion in your school. The program has been written for middle to upper primary school students, and is always particularly relevant and engaging to year 7, 8 and 9 students.
