Service description:
KidsAid works with children and young people to help them overcome traumatic events. They may have suffered from Family breakdown; Bereavement; Domestic violence; Abuse and or neglect; Illness; Peer pressure. We do this by providing Play Therapy, Art Therapy and Drama Therapy, as well as Protective Behaviours work and Child/Adult Relationship Counselling.

Our therapists are all professionally qualified and are experienced in their field; they are trained to work with families from all backgrounds and with a whole range of issues.

Early intervention to support these children and young people brings real benefits to their lives and will help to ensure these traumas will not manifest in later life, causing them more serious problems in the future.

KidsAid works with schools, local authorities and other voluntary bodies to support vulnerable children and their families. Anyone can refer a child to KidsAid – a school, GP, family member, or a child can self-refer.
