Action for Children are delivering their ’Wellbeing Star’ and ‘Bouncing Back’ programmes at hatch for a group of children during the Summer term. This will be a total of four 1hr group sessions.

‘Bouncing back’ is a face-to-face, early- intervention, resilience building CBT programme delivered over 3 group sessions. It provides discussion, practical tools and coping skills which enable children and young people to manage their day-today emotional wellbeing. It also reduces the risk of intense mental health issues.

It supports the mental health and wellbeing of children, helping them understand:

  • The feelings they’re experiencing (both good and bad)
  • How the cab change their thinking to make their feelings more positive
  • How they can change their actions and implement practical skills to cope

Wellbeing Star’ is a 90min workshop delivered by trained wellbeing practitioners, the aim is to explore emotions and learn practical tools to manage their day-to-day emotional wellbeing.

The group workshops are delivered at 3.30 -4.30pm, every Thursday from 20th June to the 11th July.
