About Northorpe Hall Child & Family Trust
Northorpe Hall Child & Family Trust is an independent charity, working closely with NHS and Kirklees Council health and care services. Our staff and volunteers provide essential services supporting the health and wellbeing of Kirklees children, young people and families.
Our vision is for all young people to have good mental health most of the time and to have the support they need to recover quickly when they experience mental health challenges. We aim to give young people a brighter future by helping them and their community build healthy relationships.
We work with young people and their families to provide a person centred approach to mental health. We provide a range of support including but not limited to group work, telephone support, counselling, mentoring, family support and support in school. Our activities, support and services help young people and their family to understand what's going on in their life which is affecting their mental and emotional health - and do something about it. We can help young people grow strong and resilient, better understand themselves and live a full and enjoyable life. We can also help them find the specialist or other services that they need.
We not only work with the young person; but help to support their family too. We understand that caring for a child or young person who is having emotional or mental health difficulties is one of the most difficult things anyone does. It can be difficult to keep a balance between providing consistent and reliable love and care while making changes which help their children be safe and get back to health. To support young people effectively, many adults in a caring role will need some support themselves, to learn and reflect, to relax and recharge.
We support parents and carers in a number of different ways, from mental health support, workshops to help them understand more about what they’re going through as well as meeting parents in similar situations with our Chill and Chat sessions. We're also here if they want to talk.
We support over 400 children and their families each month, but we know we can do more to help more people. Donations to our charity will help us improve our services and reach more young people and their families who are struggling.
