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.
