Our Creative therapies Project is now closed for new referrals and it is coming to an end at the end of October 2022. 

Over the years, our project has supported hundreds of children and young people from the age 4+ affected by domestic or sexual violence through art making, play, drama and talking. Our service has worked closely with parents and key professionals to support children and their families and provided a safe and contained space for children to help them make sense of their experiences and express their thoughts and feelings. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the children and families we have worked with and expressed how humbled  and inspired our team has felt by this experience. We would also like to thank all the professionals who have worked closely with us to enable children and their families to engage with our service. 

Our organisation and our fundraising team are working hard to explore future funding opportunities to enable us to continue providing this so much needed support. Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
