Founded in 1996, Red Balloon is a community in which children who have been traumatised by bullying or other events and circumstances can feel safe, regain their self-esteem, get back on an academic track and become confident enough to be able to rejoin their mainstream peers.
The short-term educational and therapeutic programmes run at the Centres help build children’s self-confidence and enable them to return to mainstream education or move into employment or training.
All of the students have access to a broad and balanced curriculum of academic subjects, creative arts, counselling or therapy, and personal and social education.
Red Balloon also works in partnership with local schools to improve student attendance and academic progress.
When students have regained their self-esteem and confidence, Red Balloons support’s them in the next stage of their educational journey – back to school, on to college, or on to training.
