Tapping into children’s strengths to see them thrive

Our mentoring supports children when they are going through a difficult time, and offers specialist support to build their resilience, self-esteem and hope for the future; preventing a lifetime of struggle. One of our youth workers shares her reflections on the journey of one of her mentees, and the transformative power of play and art to learn how to regulate emotions. 

The importance of helping children through trauma

Yesterday, we were honored to attend the Children and Young People Now Awards Ceremony. Being in a room with so many inspiring colleagues and organisations, who are all doing their part in helping children and young people thrive, was a great reminder of the importance of helping children through trauma. In this blog, our Director of Services, Sam, reflects on what trauma is and how our approach can help children get the right help from the start, building skills that last a lifetime.
