We founded Mondays Child UK as a charitable organisation to work with and support vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people.


Our Mission

Our solution focused ethos aims to empower each child to find their own resolutions to the problems that challenge them, encouraging responsibility and ownership of choices whilst developing mental well-being and resilience.

The school has had a relationship with Mondays Child for a number of years. In this time they have worked with a large number of children who were selected due to their lack of confidence, low self esteem and sometimes poor social skills and other conditions. In every case the children completed the programme and commented that they “Loved Thursday afternoons!” They felt safe and did things they believed previously, they couldn’t do. The group is completely inclusive and Debs and Mel have the skills to encourage, listen, support and provide appropriate boundaries.
The children also love when they are able to rejoin a group in Year 7 at secondary school, knowing that they will have adults they already know, visiting them each week. During the initial weeks this is very important to them and provides some additional reassurance.

what we do

Running early intervention groups organised through schools, we develop the children's self-belief and self-respect. Providing a safe and nurturing environment we address issues with confidence and low self-esteem by helping them recognise their value and importance within a collaborative team. With a consistent emphasis on their strengths, we raise aspirations and provide the motivation to help break the cycle of negative and disruptive behaviours. We help our young people understand that life is bigger than the limited options they believe they have and ultimately effect a larger movement of positive social change.
