According to the Childhood Commission, more children in Northamptonshire are unhappy with their mental health than almost anywhere else in England (Big Ask Survey, 2022).
Public Health England estimates that there are more than 14,500 children aged 5 to 17 in Northamptonshire living with a mental health disorder (2022).
The decline in children’s wellbeing has resulted in a 200% increase to mental health services across Northamptonshire since 2020. (NHS CCG, 2021).
The above information highlights the importance of sponsoring a child. With your help, we can make a positive change to the lives of children in Northamptonshire.
When you sponsor a child, you are giving them a safe place to process traumatic life experiences; find healthy coping mechanisms to support their long-term mental health; and build security in their family unit from which they can thrive.
Every child deserves to be given early intervention to ensure early year’s trauma does not manifest, causing more serious problems in later life.
Sponsoring a child offers access to life changing, and often life-saving therapy that wouldn’t otherwise be available. The children and young people we support benefit from long-term creative and holistic therapy interventions that are facilitated by highly qualified and experienced psychotherapists. Alongside every child’s therapy, parents and carers are offered therapeutic advice, guidance, and support to ensure positive and sustainable change.
As a sponsor, you will receive a welcome pack to introduce a child, their circumstance and the difficulties experienced; you will learn about the recommended intervention and the therapy aims; and when the intervention has come to an end, you will receive a therapist report with outcome measures and child feedback. Although information shared will be anonymised, you will feel familiar with the child you are supporting and share in the joy of knowing you’re truly making a life changing difference.
