What is With My Eyes?

With My Eyes is aimed at families with children who are outside of education, facing exclusion or suffering from mental health difficulties. The programme consists of a free 12-week course of dramatherapy workshops for Surrey children and their parents, beginning in April 2020.

"It was good to hear from other parents experiencing similar difficulties, as it can be quite a lonely journey. It provides a supported youth development space for these young people, who may lack the usual opportunities to work with peers." Participant 2019
