Calling all knitters and Crafters:
You can make a huge difference to the lives of children affected by domestic abuse and family breakdown in Shetland. We're seeking out talented volunteers to create some 'Worry Monsters' that will bring comfort and joy to the young folk we support during the most challenging times.
What are Worry Monsters? They're cuddly creatures with a very special power - they gobble up worries and fears! By crafting these adorable compainions, you can provide a source of comfort and reassurance for children who need it most. Our specialist CYP (Children and Young People) workers use a variety of creative and playful therapeutic techniques to support children (of all genders, ages 3+) to use their Worry Monster to help process what might be going on at home, and you can be a part of making that happen.
Here's how you can get involved:
*Knit, sew or craft your own Worry Monster using your favourite materials and colours. Let your creativity shine! There are various free patterns available online if you need an idea of where to start. A pouch or mouth to store worries would be ideal.
*Please ensure your Worry Monster is child-friendly, soft and huggable.
*Once you've finished your creation, please contact us and we'll arrange collection. We'll make sure each Worry Monster finds its way to a deserving child.
By sharing your crafting skills, you'll be providing a tangible reminder to these children that they are not alone and that their worries can be transformed into something magical. Let's come together as a community and make a difference - one stitch at a time. If you have any questions or need more information please email email@example.com or call 01595 692070
