Carefree Kids - a children’s charity based in Waltham Forest

Carefree Kids is a children’s charity based in the London Borough of Waltham Forest. Since 2004 we have been providing emotional support to children, teenagers and their parents and carers. 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.

For those with the personal qualities needed, we offer training in our approach to help those in need of emotional support. Our aim is to offer the highest standards in our work and relationships with our schools, children, parents and carers.

We work in 25 schools, mainly in Waltham Forest but a few in Redbridge and Newham helping helping children who have been identified as needing therapeutic help. Our volunteers - male and female of all ages - come from a wide range of backgrounds. We recruit community volunteers as well as counselling and psychotherapy students on placement throughout the year.

There are a number of ways  you can help us to help more children, young people and their parents and carers.

1)      Become a volunteer, take our training and help children using therapeutic play


2)      Make a donation – we have a shopping list of much needed items starting at just £5


3)      Become a committee member – we meet once every 6 weeks in the evening. Can you help us with marketing, raising funds, sponsorship or networking?


4)      Sponsor a resource – we could use a new therapeutic play bus as our current bus is 18 years old


5)      Get involved – no matter how many or few hours you have available you will be welcomed and you can make a difference
