Funding awarded for children’s social care work in Gateshead, Darlington and South Tyneside

Blue Cabin

Funding has been awarded to roll out a new approach to working with care-experienced children and young people across three local authorities in the North East.

The Creative Life Story Work project uses creative activities facilitated by professional artists, combined with therapeutic life story work, to help children and young people better understand their own life stories, and improve their lives at home and school.

The project builds on earlier work carried out in South Tyneside and will now be rolled out across Darlington Borough Council and Gateshead Council, thanks to funding awarded by What Works for Children’s Social Care (WWCSC).

Blue Cabin has been working with South Tyneside Council, a team of Associate Artists and Professor Richard Rose (TLSWi), to develop this new way of helping children and young people talk about and understand their life stories.
