Kids Inspire

Kids Inspire works with children who have suffered trauma, neglect or abuse to reconnect with both themselves and society. We increase feelings of self-worth resulting in kids’ positively influencing

Founded 2007

  • Mission statement

    Kids Inspire helps children and young people age 0-25 across Essex who are disadvantaged because they are/have been victim to trauma and mental health problems including:

    - Distress, abuse or neglect (e. G. Rape; bereavement; bullying)
    - Behavioural or psychological difficulties (diagnosed/emerging mental health illness, e. G. Eating disorder; depression)

    Such experiences can trigger:
    - school truancy
    - criminal activity
    - disrespect for relationships
    - decline in academic performance
    - lack of interest in previous hobbies/friendships
    - disregard for own appearance
    - substance abuse

    The longer left untreated, the harder positive intervention will be. When left without help, the disadvantages of these young people intensify. They tend to be confused, afraid and display negative behaviours that demonstrate their lack of self-worth. Such behaviours may include: self-harming; dressing promiscuously; shop lifting and refusing to attend school.

    Kids Inspire's goal is to increase the self-worth of the individual, enabling them to start working towards fulfilling their potential, choosing to take a fuller and happier role in society (e. G. Improved school attendance or application for employment).
