We are proud to announce that we are supporting our local Charity, Dandelion time. Dandelion time was established in 2003 and helps children and young people traumatised by abuse, neglect or those who are having early life attachment difficulties.
Every child should have the opportunity to grow up in a safe and nurturing environment, to feel loved and free of fear. Dandelion Time gives children time and space to love and trust again. Time to heal from emotional trauma and abuse. Time to rebuild confidence and strengthen relationships and time to develop skills and aspirations for a brighter future.
In a combination of one-to-one and group family sessions, families take part in practical farm and craft activities in which they engage with the natural world and processes, bringing therapeutic and developmental benefits whilst families enjoy being together in a relaxed supportive environment.
“One of the strengths of Dandelion Time is building bridges within a family where they have been broken through years of struggling. Dandelion Time helps children and families to relax in a natural environment and overcome pent-up feelings”. Dr E.Cheriyan, Consultant Paediatrician
A few words from Glenn Thompson, Managing Director at Advance FM:
“We are delighted to support and work with Dandelion Time. It was great to visit this Charity to see what fantastic work they do and to hear some of their success stories. They make such a difference to help build relationships with the children and their families/carers. The activities and amenities offered to those who attend Dandelion Time are incredible. From pottery making, woodwork, harvesting food to looking after animals, baby chicks, donkeys and sheep.
We will be looking into some fundraising ideas to raise as much money as we can for this incredible Charity.”
