Carefree Kids was awarded a lottery grant of £250,000 in 2013 to expand its work in Waltham Forest and neighbouring boroughs. The funding will last until 2018.
This funding has enabled Carefree Kids to employ two part-time volunteer coordinators and has provided a big boost in the capacity of the charity to increase the reach and impact of its service.
Carefree Kids is a children’s charity based in Waltham Forest, London and working in Waltham Forest and neighbouring boroughs.
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.
