Childhood First

Childhood First exists to transform traumatised young lives. The majority of our work takes place at our five residential therapeutic communities. Here we provide children and young people with a safe, warm and loving home where they can confront and overcome the traumatic experiences of their past and start to build brighter futures. We also offer a range of educational and recreational programmes that help to bridge the developmental gap between those we care for and their mainstream peers.
