Growing Hope King’s Cross

Growing Hope King’s Cross aims to grow hope for children through providing free occupational therapy, physio therapy, speech and language therapy and music therapy for children and young people with additional needs living in Camden and Islington in partnership with King’s Cross Church. Anyone can refer to our free service for an assessment and six week block of intervention for 0-18 year olds with any difficulties (mental health, physical, learning or undiagnosed) which impact on their ability to participate in everyday activities. Referrals must be made online at www.growinghope.org.uk/make-a-referral

We want to grow hope for families so we also provide groups for siblings and parents and carers of children with additional needs to discuss and process their experience. Sign up to our newsletter to find out about our next courses- www.growinghope.org.uk/get-involved

We believe Jesus brings hope in peoples lives and therefore we offer prayer at the end of our sessions if people would like it. We also provide support for families to access church if this is something they’d like to do. Anyone is welcome at Growing Hope regardless of background and beliefs and is able to decline prayer if they’d like to.
