A Space to talk about… Friendships

This resource explores friendships - what they mean to us, how they evolve and what helps our friendships to grow.

None of us are taught how to make friends. We each approach this in our own way and usually through trial and error! For some, it comes naturally while others might need to work at it. Whatever our age, it can be hard to admit that we are looking for new friends. We can easily feel embarrassed if we think we have too few friends or if a friend moves on when we don’t want them to.   It helps to know that everyone has phases in life when friendships aren’t going as they’d wish, or when they don’t have people in their life they’d call friends – it’s normal!
