I’m finding it hard to make friends

Making friends can be a difficult thing to do. When we start at a new school or in a new class it feels like everyone already has friends except you. A good way to make friends is to find people who enjoy the same things as you. Look for school clubs or listen to others in class who talk about things you like.

Some people have lots of friends and some only have a few, it doesn’t matter as long as you are a good friend to the ones you have. If you find it’s really hard to make friends and you can’t work out why, talk to your parents or teacher or an adult you trust and see if they can help.

Remember if the person you first speak to does not help or does not believe you then speak to someone else.
