***THE BELOW MESSAGE IS FROM A LOCAL SANDWELL CHARITY LOOKING FOR SUPPORT WITH THE LATEST PROJECT WHICH LOOKS TO HELP CHILDREN, FAMILIES AND SCHOOLS***
I am really pleased to be able to welcome you to the DDC Trust, a small local charity that provides fun, interactive and age-appropriate resources across a whole range of topics. The stories and resources are aimed at children 0 – 9 years of age and cover things like school readiness, being a good friend, safety around cars, water, the sun, choking hazards, cleaning products, online activity etc, building resilience, developing empathy skills, addressing exploitation and bullying, dealing with bereavement and developing skills that help them every day in their lives.
We provide stories and resources for nursery schools, child minders, children’s centres, hospitals, the Police, primary schools and lots of other health professionals. More importantly we also provide resources for parents, carers and guardians to use with their children, so learning can happen in a classroom, front room or anywhere a child is.
We have been asked by professionals and parents for stories and resources that cover how to deal with feelings, emotions, stress and anxiety, what to do if you are worried or concerned about things and gives practical tips and solutions for coping with everyday life. This is all about our Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing, a subject that has been in the news a lot recently, as children and adults are having issues. We have called this new project ‘What’s up Duck’ and are now looking to fund this, so we thought we’d try something a little different from anything we’ve done before.
We have set up a crowd funding page and we would like you to get involved! More details can be found here: Dog Duck & Cat
Any donation you can make will be an amazing help to us. Any fundraising event you can carry out to help will go a long way, so, essentially anything you can do to help would be massively appreciated and thank you in advance.
If you would like to find out more about the Dog, Duck and Cat Trust, or ask any questions about the What’s up Duck project, then please contact us:
