Children & Families
Children and young people are amazing...
They are growing and changing so fast, learning and playing and finding out who they are and where they fit in the world.
It's normal for children and young people to experience strong emotions or to behave in ways which others find difficult, particularly as the approach adulthood. It's part of growing up.
Sometimes, though, they need some extra help. National research suggests that one in four young people will need some additional help at sometime in their childhood, because their feelings and behaviours begin to have a significant impact on their well-being and development.
It might be that they have had some particularly challenging or painful life experiences and they are struggling to understand and cope with how these experiences have affected them. Sometimes there are relationship or communication problems that develop over time. We're all different, and how we cope with difficulties depends on our personality, our circumstances and experience.
Northorpe Hall Child & Family Trust is here to support children facing challenges to their emotional well-being and mental health. We provide flexible, caring and effective support to those who need it. Young people rate our services 9 out of 10, and they tell us that we have really made a difference to their lives.
We work in partnership with other organisations to support vulnerable and disadvantaged young people. Projects such as the successful V6 Vision project show how this can make a huge difference to young people's lives.

We currently offer:
ChEWS (Children's Emotional Wellbeing Service) - a new service to support the mental health and emotional wellbeing of children and young people through therapeutic counselling or direct support and also to provide advice and support to their parents/carers.
Kirklees Young Carers is a service that helps young carers feel supported, less isolated and to grow more confident at dealing with life's challenges. Our skilled, qualified and experienced face to face workers can provide activities and support for other individual children and groups of young people, including arts, drama, self-help and participation or consultation work.
