Healing Connections for young people

Content originally from Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex

We are pleased to share with you news that a new therapeutic service, funded by the Youth Endowment Fund, for 10-14 year olds based in Essex is ready to take referrals.  Healing Connections is a specialist service, aimed at young people at risk of being drawn into violence or crime.

Children’s mental health charity Kids Inspire is offering referred young people (and by approach, their parents/ carers too) 20 to 30 weekly one-hour online sessions of the Healing Connections service. It will offer space to understand and explore what lies beneath behaviours that can lead to crime and violence.

Kids Inspire anticipate that referrals into this service will come from Essex Police, GPs and schools, but if you know of any potential young people that could benefit from this service please contact clinicaladmin@kidsinspire.org.uk or call 01245 348707.
