For Local Authorities

You have a duty to ensure children are safeguarded …

… a commitment to protect and empower those who have suffered, are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm.

You also have a duty to promote children’s welfare and improve their well-being.

One way to do that is through Special Time.

This simple, yet powerful therapeutic approach creates a safe space for the repetitive expression of intense feelings …

… without the need for words.

It gives children an opportunity to relearn about their own power and control …

… to re-experience and reclaim, in a positive way, the precious aspects of childhood.
