It has been a very unusual last eighteen months for all of us. At BTH we have been incredibly busy getting all of our systems online, delivering therapy to young people via zoom and recruiting new staff to meet the growing need for bereavement and separation and divorce support in the city. We are currently fundraising for our future service delivery too.
Please be advised that our AGM will take place on Monday 8th November at 7pm via Zoom video conferencing. This years AGM will again only include the formal business. If you would like to attend please contact us and you will be sent the details.
In March 2022 we will be holding a memory treasuring and activity day for all the families we have worked with who have lost a loved one since the start of the pandemic in 2020. Many families have missed out on the chance to gather with others to remember the person who died or to mark their anniversary due to restrictions. Look out for your invite to this special day where we can join together and remember those who have died.
Our next Child Parent Relationship Therapy course starts on Wednesday 19th January 2022. It will run for ten weeks at our base in Billesley, Holy Cross Church Centre. We are really looking forward to meeting parents face to face and supporting them in their relationships with their children! Do contact us if you would like a place on the course or would like to refer a family (you will need their permission).
We are very excited to welcome two new play therapists to our staff team this September, Anna and Michaela. This expands our staff team to ten! Anna and Michaela will be focusing on work with children aged twelve and under who have been referred to us for play therapy. They are both members of PTUK.
We are very excited to be setting up our Children and Young People’s Forum again this autumn, after a break. This group of young people will feed into our planning and vision and help ensure BTH stays child-centred. Watch this space for more details!
