In 2021, we supported 421 children and young people with art therapy delivered over 2,996 hours in total. Our therapy is usually delivered in blocks of 8-12 weeks (one hour per week) but this has been increasing with levels of anxiety higher due to the pandemic. Averaged over the year, 2,996 hours of therapy is over 62 hours each week.


This includes one-to-to-one art therapy, small group art therapy with children and young people who have the same chronic health condition on common (e.g. Juvenile Arthritis, Cystic Fibrosis, Kidney Disease, Diabetes etc.) and family art therapy for families struggling to cope with the impact of the illness.
