To support the wellbeing and mental health of children and their families who are struggling through traumatic life experiences through play

 New stretch target

We also support parents and provide training for school staff and other practitioners. Our training courses and Institute for Play and Attachment enables us to increase the reach of our support across the UK and beyond.

Reaching an extra target would allow us to help more parents and carers, as well as their children.

Clear Sky provides early, age appropriate Play & Creative Arts Therapy services to vulnerable children when they need it most. These children (usually between 4-12 years old) have experienced:

  • Bereavement
  • Bullying
  • Family breakdown
  • Parents in prison, with substance abuse issues or with mental health issues
  • Traumatic experiences (e.g. car accident, fire etc.)
  • Domestic violence


Sadly, this list is not exhaustive. As a result, these children often struggle with:

  • Emotional and behavioural difficulties
  • Mental health difficulties
  • Challenging behaviour
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Learning difficulties 


Working with schools across Oxfordshire and beyond, our team of fully qualified therapists deliver our frontline therapeutic services including one-to-one or group Play & Creative Arts Therapy. Play & Creative Arts Therapy gives children a safe space to enable them to explore past or present traumas to work towards becoming happy children who love life and enjoy school.

During the Coronavirus crisis our services are a vital part of schools efforts to continue to support these children through this difficult and confusing time.

Thank you so much for your pledges so far!!
