WELCOME

Welcome to Bridge the Gap, we are a C.I.C 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.

Book online for low cost Emotional Education sessions for the whole family.

At Bridge The Gap we provide a range of services for children, young people, schools and their families. We work in a relationship focused way helping families to feel safe, seen, empowered and valued. 

Group sessions can be booked online and take place at our hub on Friar Gate, Derby. These cover a range of topics and are a safe space. Children (and adults) feel nervous when trying something new and meeting new people, we allow for these nerves and help the children to move through them; no child is forced to join in. You can bring your child to see the space and meet some of the team before starting.

We also offer regular fun craft sessions and so much more, please call 01332 600827 or email if you would like further information or to book an assessment call. 

You can self-refer into our private 1:1 service, or schools and G.P's can do it for you. We then arrange a telephone assessment with a member of our team to ensure that we are recommending the right pathway for support. Our practitioners also work with schools who fund us to go and support a child over a 12 + week period. If play or music therapy is deemed to be an appropriate next step then a separate assessment will be made by the therapist.

 

Assessment calls are £25 and last between 30 minutes to an hour.

 

If we know of any funded or free support available we will always inform you and share the details.
