Thank you to our supporters
“It was not only the children who benefited from the Arts Therapies sessions! Their parents also participated and gained considerable new insight into their children’s behaviours and how strategies might be developed to facilitate greater understanding between themselves and their children. We hope that BCAT can continue to find sufficient funding to continue to work with us”.
