A grant of £4,209 from the Children on the Edge Fund to the Centre for Fun & Families enabled the delivery of two corresponding group work programmes: “Overcoming Your Anxiety”, for young people aged 11-16 and “Supporting Your Anxious Child” for the parents of these young people.
The sessions were delivered at Catmose College and helped eight young people and eleven parents/carers in total. As a result of the programmes, the children have learned how to cope with their anxieties, and have improved their confidence. Their parents and carers have also benefited from a better understanding of their child’s anxieties and have learnt new strategies to improve family life.
