WE HELP CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE OVERCOME TRAUMATIC EVENTS

We do this by providing a range of creative therapies tailor-made to suit the needs of the child or young person we are working with.

Our aim is to provide early intervention in the form of creative therapies to support children and young people lead healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives and to ensure early years’ trauma does not manifest in later life, causing more serious problems in the future.

KidsAid works with children and young people aged 3-18 years who have experienced trauma ranging from anxiety, illness, peer pressure and bullying through to family breakdown, attachment issues, bereavement, behavioural difficulties, domestic violence, neglect, physical and sexual abuse.

KidsAid also offers therapies to the parents, carers or siblings as an addition to the 1:1 therapy already provided for the children we see as often this can offer further benefits to the family.
