Our aim

is to promote the physical and mental wellbeing of children and young people with Special Educational Needs and those experiencing Difficult Life Circumstances, and their families.

We believe

in the many benefits of being outdoors and strive to provide access to outdoor activities for the children and young people we support, and respite breaks for these children and their families.

We understand

the importance of mental health in overall wellbeing but know that accessing mental health support is not always easy. It is our aim to provide mental health support when it is needed, providing counselling and wellbeing activities.

OUR CHARITABLE ACTIVITIES

Outdoor Activities

We work with schools to identify the children who would benefit most from our support and offer these children the opportunity to go on outdoor activity days. These activity days help to build physical and personal confidence in the children.

Counselling Support

We offer free counselling for children and young people who meet out beneficiary criteria and a donation-based service for their parents and/or carers. We also offer a paid for service open to the wider community.

TTF currently has two key projects:

The Thomas Theyer Cottage at White Hall

The cottage will provide accommodation so that children and young people, with Special Educational Needs (SEN) or Difficult Life Circumstances (DLC) can enjoy residential activity breaks at White Hall Outdoor Activity Centre, situated on the outskirts of Buxton in the Peak District of Derbyshire

The Thomas Theyer Support Centre

TTF is looking for premises for a support centre:

 

  • An accessible venue where families can come for support and signposting.
  • Private rooms for counselling and activity such as workshops and wellbeing sessions.
  • Office space.

All counsellors have monthly supervision to ensure they are following ethical guidelines and working safely with their clients. Many are specialised in at least 1 or more areas such as Trauma, Anxiety and Depression and they have continuing professional development (CPD) each to year to keep their knowledge focused and up to date.
