Free to Be Kids
Free to Be Kids runs therapeutic residential courses focussed on improving confidence, emotional wellbeing and behaviour in school. Led by experienced social workers, it works with the most vulnerable young people in London, including those with extremely disadvantaged backgrounds, a history of abuse or neglect and experience of exclusion from school or a referral to Social Services. Free to Be Kids grew significantly in its first two years but has now reached capacity operating solely as a voluntary organisation. The Fore?s grant will fund the salary of a sessional worker, who will support the day-to-day management of residential courses, freeing up the co-founders to expand the organisation and improve its financial sustainability.
