“Happier children – Brighter futures”
Ewing Associates are proud to support Blue Smile, a children’s charity that provides counselling and therapy for pupils with mental health difficulties.
Blue Smile help children at school in Cambridgeshire between the ages of 3 and 13, a critical window of opportunity for change.
They provide the kind of specialist support in schools which gives a vulnerable child the expert and consistent care they need.
We are pleased to have helped to fund a training session called “An Introduction to understanding students’ mental health” for teachers at a local school who may deal with pupils with mental health difficulties in future or at present.
The Chief Executive of Blue Smile shares her feedback on the session:
“It was lovely to meet the staff recently and deliver our training: an introduction to understanding students’ mental health.
As agreed, the training was an overview of mental health in a large forum to reach the maximum number of staff. This was made possible by funding from Ewing Associates.
The majority of feedback from the training was very positive – most staff said that they found it very informative and engaging and relevant to today’s landscape of teaching and the general strategies we presented were well received.”
We are pleased to have successfully referred Blue Smile for a grant through the Openwork Foundation in 2018 and 2019. The valuable grants will ensure Blue Smile can continue their ongoing support at a school in Cambridgeshire.
Christmas Card Donation
During 2019, we decided to reduce our spending on Christmas cards and donated £500 to Blue Smile.
This will help to fund the vital work they carry out at schools in Cambridgeshire.
