Don't Forget The Kids
Organisation type: Voluntary or Community Sector
We are a voluntary organisation which aims to provide self-help support groups for children who have parents/carers living with cancer.
Children, during such traumatic times need an outlet to voice their feelings and emotions, as they often feel very anxious and alone. We believe that by communicating with other children going through similar situations they will realise that they are not alone and in turn empower themselves by supporting one and other.
We aim to provide a comfortable, informal enviroment where parents can relax whilst watching their kids play;
Support groups will be held weekly for children up to the age of 17, based in Haringey (neighbouring boroughs to follow) who have a parent/carer living with cancer;
A range of activities will be available , arts & crafts, drama & dance/music production, toys and games;
Nutritional snacks and drinks.
Please also note we are NOT a counselling service and all children must be accompanied by parent/career at all times.
