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.
Child to volunteer
“You are the only one that listens to me”
Class teacher about a child excluded three times for aggression
“S is much calmer in class and has changed a lot. Her behaviour is much better. She will sit and concentrate. She did a maths test recently and moved up two sub-levels. This is unheard of for S. and I didn't believe it so I made her take it again. And she did it again!”
‘It has been a fantastic experience volunteering with Carefree Kids. There are challenges but it’s also been rewarding when I have seen a change in a child, I have learnt so much.’ (July 2011)
