Channel your power to help children with chronic conditions by becoming a doART Hero
Teapot Trust’s art therapy services are transforming the lives of children and young people living with adverse mental health as a result of ‘invisible’ but debilitating chronic conditions.
Teapot Trust, a charity (SC041885) that provides art therapy for children and young people with chronic conditions, aims to improve mental health and wellbeing by utilising a combination of art and psychotherapy to help children manage anxiety, build resilience, and express themselves.
92% of the charity’s service users have said that non-invasive art therapy and creative interventions help them cope, feel better, and overcome suicidal thoughts.
Teapot Trust’s doART Heroes Campaign is challenging the community to take action by helping spread the healing power of art.
How do you become a doART Hero?

Challenge friends, teachers, school houses or departments, and clubs to join the doART Heroes by hosting their own fundraisers, taking on a heroic challenge, or creating fundraiser pages.
