Teapot Trust’s charitable aims are to enhance the lives of children, young people and their families who are suffering the impact of any chronic or long-term condition, including ‘hidden’ health conditions, e.g. Rheumatic diseases. The charity’s main activities are:

  1. Providing art therapy and creative wellbeing interventions through which children and young people are supported to explore and express their feelings, build resilience and develop positive coping strategies.
  2. Working within the UK, we meet children, young people and families’ needs in any appropriate setting (including hospitals, mental health facilities, community venues and online) – often in partnership with others.

We also seek to have a wider impact and to bring lasting public benefit beyond the charity’s core community of interest by improving both public and professional understanding of the impact of art therapy – often effective where traditional talking therapies have failed.
