The Teapot Trust is dedicated to providing professional art therapy in a medical environment to children coping with chronic illness. In particular, we focus on supporting children suffering from complex rheumatological diseases, including Lupus. Our art therapists work in medical settings, including clinics, hospital wards, and hospices, in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee, Kinross, Aberdeen, Inverness, Kirkcaldy, the Borders and London to support children coping with the emotional and mental strain that so often accompanies their battle with illness.

We know how beneficial doing art can be for chronically ill children. We are launching our new development fund, doART, so that we can continue to provide professional art therapy and creative interventions for those who could greatly benefit from it. Learn more about how this fund will contribute to the wellbeing of our service users and their families.
Teapot Trust is extremely grateful to have wonderful support from the community. Thank you to all our supporters such as the Postcode Community Trust, which has generously donated to help us run our new Newcastle service. To learn more about their support, click below.
