More About The Organisation

About the Service

About the Organisation

The TRC exists to help children recover from trauma. We facilitate recovery for children and young people as they process trauma, and support them as they piece their lives back together until a wholeness can be found.

In Bath, Bristol, Bradford and Guernsey we provide play, art and creative therapy for children and their carers who are facing trauma and extreme challenges.

Aims of the Therapy Centres

We want to help children process what is going on in their world.
We want to help them find their voice.
We want to give them the time and space to work out what they are feeling, and why, so they can be empowered into a positive, bright future.

Additional and Special Educational Needs

How do you aim to meet the unique needs of the child?

As a part of the Trauma Recovery Centre (TRC), we share some foundational core beliefs about children and young people. We believe passionately that children and young people have the right to learn, to feel safe, and to enjoy life. For many children, life presents difficulties and challenges, and consequently they struggle to engage with education. At the TRC we are committed to working with these children and young people to support them, help them process their experiences and find strategies to help them engage in education.
We believe it is worth it for the one child and are committed to designing both therapeutic programmes for specific challenges.

How do you promote positive relationships and ensure good, ongoing communication with families?

We want to facilitate recovery from trauma and so we work with the parents and carers. They may be invited to partake in a parenting class whilst their child is attending Oakside. We believe in a holistic method and will work with any part of the family that needs or asks for help. There is ongoing communication with parents and schools, including weekly written feedback on emotional, behavioural and academic progress.
