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.

Learn more about how this fund will contribute to the wellbeing of our service users and their families.
