We are thrilled by the launch of Friends of Carefree Kids on 16 April 2011.
The event, held at the Quaker Meeting House in Leytonstone, was an overwhelming success and there was standing room only.
Sir Richard Bowlby, our patron, discussed his father’s acclaimed work on attachment theory and how this continues to be developed to better serve children’s needs for healthy emotional development.
We discovered how even a simple game of “peek a boo” can encourage a child’s ability to be able to empathise.
There were many questions from the audience about attachment theory and about the work of Carefree Kids.
Netty Fake movingly described her experiences of working for Carefree Kids, Colin Bilton entertained us with his first day experiences with Carefree Kids and Catherine Pamplin informed us of future Carefree Kids initiatives.
It was great to see so many people who were supporting the launch of Friends of Carefree Kids by signing up to the annual subscription or making a one-off donation. This small subscription makes such a difference to our funding needs.
