bccs are working hard to support children and young people struggling with their mental health at this time.

A new survey published this week finds that 80% of young people have seen a worsening of their emotional health conditions since the start of the #coronavirus crisis.

With the indefinite suspension of the bccs fundraising calendar, never have donations from our community been more vital.

Please #TakeAMinute to donate today & help bccs continue to support the emotional health of children & young people in Essex & East London.


Please share our posts so that we can reach more people who may need our specialist services.

We know that the support of a child therapist can have a huge impact on a child’s positive development; emotionally, academically and socially.  bccs have staff trained to help children and young people, who have experienced loss, bereavement, anxiety, low self-esteem, bullying, depression, aggression, domestic violence and other emotional health related issues.

bccs would like to take a minute to thank everyone who has already sent a donation – they are most grateful for your support.

Together, we really can make a difference to the lives of children and young people who are struggling with their emotional health – thank you.
