We are Childhood First, a charity that provides class-leading residential care and treatment to 5–18-year-old children; all of whom have experienced severe abuse, neglect, and early-life trauma.
We have two homes in Norfolk and three homes and a specialist school in Kent.
Our Mission is to transform the lives of children and young people in our care who suffer severe emotional and psychological difficulties, so that they can relate well to others, fulfil their potential and enjoy life. Everything we do is founded on the simple truth that damage caused by relationships can most effectively be healed by relationships.
We have listened and responded to the children and young people in our care’s wishes. They would like us to improve their outdoor recreational spaces across our communities and school.
Outdoor recreational and leisure activities are clinically proven to have significant physical, social and psychological benefits - especially for those who live with trauma.
With your support, we aim to raise £50,000 to enable these improvements for our young residents. Together, we can heal hurt minds.
