Free Support and Resource Centre
Living with and loving a child who carries trauma pain through their daily life is a humbling and exhausting experience. They are brave warriors whose strength and ability to keep going, even when the world feels dangerous and frightening is incredible to be part of. It also means day to day life is demanding, unusual, chaotic, scary, rewarding and at times bizarrely funny. This website is a collection of creative works in different formats to support parents and professionals working with these incredible children. www.innerworldwork.co.uk
