Dandelion Time

Dandelion Time is a charity for children struggling with complex emotional and behavioural difficulties. These children may be socially isolated and many have been excluded or have withdrawn from school. Dandelion works with the whole family in a therapeutic programme of activities around the farm. Children discover their abilities in a practical, stimulating way, building confidence and self esteem and helping them to re-engage at home and at school. www.dandeliontime.org.uk

Story

Thank you to everyone who rowed in our Rowathon in October 2014.  It was a great success and we exceeded our target.


To join the Rowathon in 2015, please see our website for details.  9th to 11th October 2015 at 7R Performance, Marden.


Please see our website for more information: www.dandeliontime.org.uk or follow us on Facebook.


Dandelion Time's work with referred families has consistently helped highly troubled children and families overcome trauma and lead more positive lives. Many children and young people have been able to progress with a more positive outlook in school, at home and in the community.  They learn how to express their feelings in non-destructive ways, build relationships with their peers, and relate to others without conflict whilst gaining new skills and interests. Crucially, supportive and caring therapeutic staff and volunteers provide positive role models and present a caring model of adulthood for children to aspire to, sometimes following years of negative experiences. Regular evaluation of our work indicates that children and young people are less fearful, are able to self regulate their behaviour and manage their feelings, and gain a belief that they are able to achieve in life.
