ATFC are a UK based charity currently working in 14 local Jewish primary schools, who believe that every child with emotional and/or behavioural difficulties should be entitled to some form of therapeutic intervention when needed. Whilst children can go to centres or private therapists outside school hours, we feel that the best place for a child to receive therapy is within a place and time they are already familiar with and feel safe in.
Offering therapy at school also provides the therapist with the opportunity to observe children at play or in class to see how they interact with other children and teachers. Our therapists are also available to meet with teachers, SENCO’s and parents to provide the best support for each child.
Chai Cancer Care is the community’s cancer support organisation, providing a range of services including counselling for families, individuals and couples; complementary therapies; children, teenage and family services; home support services; group activities and support groups and the Medical Outpatient Rehabilitation and Palliative Care Service.
