Carefree Kids is a children’s charity based in the London Borough of Waltham Forest

We use non-directive therapeutic play, art therapy, dramatherapy and dance/movement therapy to help release troubling emotions that may be difficult to communicate verbally or in other ways.

‘CFK has been a real success this year, not only for S, but for others as well, if the feedback from parents was anything to go by.’ (June 2011)
