The Hayes Free Church Christmas Tree Festival for 2017 will be supporting Bromley Y
Bromley Y is a long-established local charity for young people. Now hosted by Bromley Wellbeing, it provides the Bromley Community Wellbeing Service for Children and Young People. It is the single point of access for all referrals concerning the emotional and mental wellbeing of young people up to the age of 18 in Bromley (that is, living or working in Bromley or registered with a GP in the borough). Schools, GPs, and social services may make referrals, and those over 16 can self-refer.
After a child or young person is referred in, their difficulties are screened and it is then decided how best to support them and their family. This could be through Bromley Y’s own range of short-term, early intervention therapies (which include counselling, mentoring and various other forms of therapy) – or if necessary through referral elsewhere.
This proposal is put forward by two of our members who have seen the charity at work. They know the support that Bromley Y can provide at a difficult time, and have been impressed by the way in which the charity aims to provide a safe, friendly environment for children, young people and their families to explore the difficulties that they may be experiencing, helping them to identify new ways forward.
