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.
