Working with Children
Make a Move delivers group sessions for primary and secondary school-aged pupils who may be finding life difficult. Our work can make a significant and lasting positive impact on pupils’ ability to flourish in school.
We help pupils improve in personal, social, thinking, communication and self-management skills, improving their ability to participate in the classroom and engage with their peers.
In each school session we use a combination of
creative movement, therapeutic dance and talking therapies. Make a Move’s practitioners are very experienced and responsive to group dynamics, so each session is tailored to the needs of each group.
Who keeps us going?
As a charity, we receive funding from several trusts and foundations:
Case Study – Paige’s Story
Paige attended weekly after-school sessions. She was shy at first. However, she attended every
session and became very proud of her dance work. She became a happier, more confident young person and performed to large audiences with her peers.
