Welcome to Bridge the Gap, we are a non-profit organisation dedicated to improving the mental health of children, parents and teachers in Derby City and beyond.

We want children to form a connection with Bridge the Gap so that, should they require our support in a more reactive way, we have already begun forming a positive relationship with them. We want Bridge the Gap to be a constant in children's lives so that they can continue to access our sessions in a proactive way. Just like keeping fit physically, we need to keep emotionally fit as well.

Free webinar on Supporting Children through Coronavirus pandemic available here (zoom registration required). You can read our 2020 Impact report here.

Mini Relaxation Kits and Letters of Support

We are sending out mini relaxation kits and letters of support every day. These are free and we will post to all areas in the UK.

All letters are handwritten and unique to each child, the form for these is available here.

If you can donate to help with the running of this service, please do so here.
