People I Can Trust
Click to download

People you trust are important in your life. Share your problems and ask for help.

Think about 5 people you trust and write their names onto the hand, one for each finger.

You can colour and decorate the hand if you wish. Keep your list in a safe spot.

If you have a problem call on one of the people on your list to work through Ask Ed with you. They might help you with ideas or help you put your ideas into action.

If you are not able to print a copy of the hand, trace around your own hand, cut it out and write your list.
