To create dedicated warm, bright and engaging spaces for the children, young people and families who use our children’s services

by RD&E Charity in Exeter, England, United Kingdom

Support our cro1605268607_compressed_1.jpgwdfunding campaign
In early 2020 the infant outpatient waiting area was refreshed to bring it up-to-date and make it more engaging for the children, this was funded by Charitable Funds including a single charity donating £50,000 towards the project.  

We value your support to allow us to complete our project

We realised that following the success of the redesign and to see the children’s faces whilst playing in a new bright and engaging area whilst waiting for their consultant led appointment that we needed to continue through into the teenage/older children’s area. To enable us to make this happen we are required to raise further funds so this  is why we launched the Starfish Appeal.

The teenage/older children’s outpatient area was last updated in 1995 and is in substantial need of modernising. Children and parents have asked the Charity to improve the environment so that it is brighter and more welcoming, as the last major redesign was 25 years ago.

We want to provide activities, materials and equipment in the new area to help the children that visit express themselves and have fun. It is important to provide preparation and distraction techniques as well as multi-sensory experiences to alleviate any anxieties and misconceptions that the children may have while they are waiting.

These techniques are also helpful in relieving boredom and benefit recovery, recuperation and rehabilitation.

Research suggests that the physical environment can have a considerable effec1605268873_compressed_2.jpgt on mental wellbeing, for example, bright, colourful spaces can help lift mood and reduce anxiety thus providing a happier and calmer setting for children.
