Think Children offers an early intervention service for children with emerging emotional, social and/or behavioural issues.

One to one sessions with a specially trained worker aim to build self-esteem, emotional resilience and coping skills before issues have the opportunity to escalate.

Wendy Walton-Towle, of Think Children said, “We are extremely grateful to St James’s Place for this very generous donation.

“Parents have told us that nobody wants to know until it’s too late so we know that we fill a gap in local services.

“With ongoing government funding cuts, donations such as this really are the charity’s lifeline and enable us to help as many local children in need as possible.”
