Charity information

Carefree Kids

We recruit and train volunteers to deliver individual therapeutic play sessions with children in schools.

We also support school staff and parents/carers to engage more therapeutically with children.

Founded 2004

  • Mission statement

    The Object of the Charity is to promote the emotional health of babies, children, young people and their parents and carers.

    We meet our charitable objectives by:
    • Training volunteers who have suitable personal qualities, in our approach to enable them to help those in need of emotional support.
    • Using non-directive therapeutic play, art therapy, drama therapy and dance/movement therapy to help release troubling emotions that may be difficult to communicate verbally or in other ways.
    • Working mainly in schools, helping children who have been identified as needing therapeutic help.
    • Developing a unique project called ‘Before Becoming a Parent’ (B4BP) on the emotional aspects of parenthood aimed at girls and boys in our local school.
    • Supporting, where possible, parents of the children we see both informally and in group sessions.
