This is our Priority for Children
The numbers of children who are experiencing childhood trauma and adverse childhood experiences are increasing. Social media and technology is having an impact on childhood and is a contributing factor to their development. There are increasing numbers of children struggling with their behaviour, relationships, mindset, self-belief and academic achievements as a result.
"Our mission is to help children realise they are not their trauma"
We believe no child should be defined by their trauma and all children should be able to express, explore and understand their experiences, feeling and emotions. Our mission is to help children realise they are not their trauma. Through our different mediums of support, we give children the opportunity to become self-aware enough to begin to learn to manage their own wellbeing and mental health, develop their emotional intelligence and believe in themselves.
We also believe in you and your capacity to make a difference in the lives of the children around you. That’s why we offer different levels of support that will guide, inspire and empower you to make a difference.
As Ghandi said “Be the change you wish to see in the world”
