The Glass Wipe Board Company and Charities
Just like us, The Church Street Project a local charity in Folkestone is making a difference to the local community, by offering on site counselling in schools for children and their parents.It all started in 2004 when Children's Fund money was put into Folkestone schools, where young people were awaiting counselling and a counsellor was set up in Church Street next to St Eanswythes School. As it turned out, the school was really impressed with the counselling and various therapies on offer, but unfortunately, the funding eventually ran out, without the counsellor being able to complete counselling sessions. The school decided to pay for those session in order for children to be able to finish their counselling, which gave them time to secure funding. Kent Community Foundation decided to help out and the Church Street Project was born and it became a registered charity in 2006. They are currently working in 5 local primary schools and are piloting parent sessions, to benefit the family dynamic, which will follow on from child based work for parents that are interested.
