“We at the Abbey Primary have been accessing KidsAid for the last year. We have referred 8 pupils for different reasons. Most of these children have suffered trauma in their lives: some have suffered loss, some have high levels of anxiety, depression, or behavioural issues.
The therapy sessions with KidsAid have been vital for these children and have had a huge impact. After completing their sessions, they have been noticeably happier, calmer and are now in a position to regulate their emotions and have the resilience to cope with life’s challenges.
They have improved well-being and better relationships with adults. School staff and parents have seen a marked difference in their confidence and emotional well-being. These children also have improved relationships with peers and now have the confidence to build firm friendships.
We could not support these vulnerable children and achieve the best possible outcome for them without the support from KidsAid.”
“All services are in one place which made the referral process very simple. Staff attitude is wonderful – everyone on the team is polite, kind and knowledgeable with clear advice and guidance offered. KidsAid made a big difference to the child they worked with. I would definitely recommend KidsAid to colleagues and other families in need of this service.”
“The parent support sessions have been so empowering! Home used to be chaotic – me and kids would argue all the time. I was totally overwhelmed. I was always shouting or getting upset. I was exhausted. Everything felt like hard work. But since having support, home feels a lot calmer. There is less shouting, and problems are resolved more quickly. I feel I am more understanding of my children – I am a better parent, and my children seem a lot happier too. Thank you KidsAid!”
