In 2014-15 we’ll have delivered over 100 contracts funded by Schools, Local Authorities, Health or Housing Associations across the South West. We are also doing a lot of work in the field of Fostering & Adoption by providing theraputic support for a number of placements.
We are currently delivering a contract in Dorset in partnership with Dorset County Council and funded by the Police & Crime Commissioner to support children and families affected by Domestic Abuse. Somerset County Council are funding us to provide specialist support for families affected by domestic abuse and families affected by suicide. Yarlington Housing continue to give us generous support for our therapeutic work with their residents and we have worked all over Somerset and North Somerset with Knightstone Housing delivering open access community playranger sessions.
We have enjoyed new partnerships with Somerset Wildlife Trust funding a wild play programme in Taunton, and generous support from Somerset Community Foundation towards our annual group for children who have experienced bereavement. We are continuing our partnership with Gloucestershire Young Carers where we provide therapeutic expertise.
