Learning Experiences

Learning Experiences

Experiences are delivered during half term periods, including some weekends and evenings, to a maximum of 10 children at a time. This ensures we are able to support and nurture each individual child throughout their time with the Children in Care Programme. With a special focus on the social and emotional development, we provide children with the extra support needed to flourish in each environment. Working closely alongside professionals, we provide the stepping-stones to raise children’s confidence levels, motivation, teamwork and the ability to try new things. Our experiences are delivered by our skilled tutors and are supported by a bank of volunteers from various backgrounds.*
