The four groups will take place in Gloucester and will enable young people who are experiencing difficulties to explore their thoughts, feelings and emotions through art.
Community Family Care’s Art Journal project was launched in response to the need for effective emotional and mental health support for some young people. It has helped to improve the emotional wellbeing of more than 100 young people in the last year.
The donation was provided by the Santander Foundation which offers Discovery Grants to UK registered charities for projects that help disadvantaged people in local communities.
Community Family Care, based in Staunton, is a registered charity which supports families all over Gloucestershire.
Manager Sasha Hart said: “We’re delighted to receive this grant from the Santander Foundation. Our Art Journal project has helped young people with self harm, self-confidence and anger issues to use art to reflect, learn new coping strategies and improve their emotional wellbeing.
“Thanks to Santander we’re now able to offer the project to even more young people.”
Amy Slack, Manager at the Santander Foundation, said: “The Santander Foundation makes hundreds of donations every year to good causes throughout the UK. We are committed to playing a key part in the community and we are delighted to be supporting Community Family Care and hope the donation makes a real difference.”
