Dixon Phillips has been a proud supporter of the Blue Smile Project since 2011. The Charity’s aim is to offer skilled therapy and mentoring to troubled children attending schools in Cambridge’s most deprived areas.
Blue Smile work intensively with individual children for much longer than other agencies can. This enables them to build trusting relationships not only with the children but also (importantly) with parents, to help address the children’s longer term emotional and psychological challenges and avoid these continuing on into adulthood.
Our visit enabled us also to see first-hand the positive impact that the Blue Smile team can have working with pupils both inside and outside the classroom.
We will be taking a more active role in our support of the Blue Smile Project in 2014 by assisting with their Better Reading Partner programme, reading to children and listening to them read.
