Blue Smile are a local children’s mental health charity working in schools across Cambridgeshire to provide specialist counselling and arts-based therapy to work towards better coping strategies and school performance in students.
Anne Kent-Taylor, Charity Director of Blue Smile said:
“We’re delighted to receive this generous support from PEM Charitable Trust, which will help us provide specialist mental health support to more children in Cambridgeshire schools. Sadly we’re seeing more demand than ever for Blue Smile’s help, as record numbers of young people struggle with their emotional wellbeing, but this donation will help deliver prompt, effective support that makes a huge difference in children’s lives.”
Amy Hayden, our CSR and Community Lead said:
“We are thrilled to support local charity Blue Smile, who provide mental health support to children in the Cambridge area. Our grant of £2000 has contributed towards their Blue Smile Day program, which enables therapists to set up a base and provide regular, consistent support on the ground in schools. It was incredible to meet with staff members to hear more about how children are able to express themselves and make real progress predominantly through art-based therapies.”
