We are currently facing a mental health crisis in this country. 1 in 10 children and young people have a diagnosable mental health disorder – that’s around 3 in every average sized school classroom – and many more are suffering due to upsetting circumstances in their lives such as bereavement or family breakdown. Many existing services are stretched to their limits, with long waiting lists, and often cannot offer the kind of support children and young people feel able to engage with. Nature and Nurture CIC offers a unique, holistic approach to supporting children and young people in Derbyshire and beyond, who are experiencing emotional difficulties. It is a social enterprise, operating as a not-for-profit community interest company and relies on fundraising activities and donations to continue its valuable work.
On 23rd March I will be running in the XRunner 10km obstacle race in order to raise funds for this fantastic organisation. I would really appreciate any sponsorship, no matter how small, in order to help Nature and Nurture continue to offer the help and support that so many of our children need. Thank you!
