Service Description

🌟 Welcome to our "Compassionate Crafts" Course🌈 Embark on a 6-week, small group, creative course designed specifically for children. This series of sessions has been carefully crafted to help children very gently explore and understand some low level emotions, reinforcing the message that they matter, are loved, and are never alone. Our trained Bridge the Gap volunteers facilitate this course, introducing emotional literacy with a focus on six key emotions, encouraging children aged between 7 and 11 to share and process them. Why "Compassionate Crafts"? 🎨 Provide a safe space for children to connect with caring adults who offer support when needed. Offer a creative outlet through open-ended and themed crafts to help children process their emotions. Facilitate conversations with non-judgmental, safe adults. Boost self-esteem and foster positive feelings about oneself. Provide a gentle and low-level introduction to emotional education. Weekly Themes: 📆 Week 1 - Kindness Week 2 - Anger Week 3 - Worry Week 4 - Happiness Week 5 - Gratitude Week 6 - Self-esteem Location: 📍 This course is held at our hub located at 45 Friar Gate, Derby DE1 1DA. Calm and Supportive Environment: 🌿 Our sessions create a calm space with a compassionate adult present to address any questions or concerns. We focus on drip-feeding emotional education centred around kindness and compassion. For Parents: 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 We understand that it's natural for children (or adults) to feel nervous about joining a new group. Rest assured, we'll help them feel safe and reassured. Parents can wait just outside the room if needed and make themselves a tea or coffee. Important Information: ℹ️ This is a funded service provided by Bridge the Gap. If you book a space but are unable to attend, please inform us promptly so that we can offer the opportunity to another child. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
