The Apricot Centre Wellbeing Service works to enhance the wellbeing of children and families through; providing specialist and creative therapies, therapeutic mentoring, and nature-based farm wellbeing activities. We work with children and adolescents (0-25 years old) with complex life circumstances - as is common in adoption, fostering, residential care, special guardianship, care arrangement orders, and also with children who have special educational needs, disabilities (SEND) and those struggling with mainstream education.
What is Wellbeing?
Wellbeing means different things to different people. Our approach to wellbeing is in discovering what makes us feel well or 'at home'; in ourselves, in our families/communities, and in our relationship with nature. Wellbeing work can help build esteem, a sense of meaning, belonging or ‘being at home’ in oneself, enhancing emotional and physical health, also improving relationship and community interactions.
