This Christmas we are delighted to be taking part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge to raise funds so that children can benefit from our new Skills for Life Programme – SPARK Resilience.
We were delighted to be invited to present at The International Young Carers Conference (3rd-6th May 2021).
This Young Carers Awareness Day (an annual event, led by Carers Trust) we are celebrating the fantastic work Sutton Young Carers Service are doing to promote the mental health and emotional wellbeing of Young Carers through Passport, one of our Skills for Life programmes.
From September 2019, our new Skills for Life programme, Passport will be available to UK schools.

The development of thinking skills is an essential life skill for all our children. Consider the journey a child takes as they move from a curious baby to an inquisitive pre-schooler, moving to an experimenting reception child, into a questioning KS1 child, then using their skills as a theorist and researcher in to KS2, ready to move into the next stage of their life.
The original impetus for Zippy’s Friends came from the suicide prevention movement, with the aim of enabling children to find positive coping skills so that they wouldn’t feel the need to resort to desperate measures such as self-harm or suicide.
