An exciting new project that has been funded by the Waterloo Foundation this project will give CYCA the opportunity to work with eighteen primary schools over a period of three years in the Llanelli area.

The work is underpinned by our trauma and resilience model and we work systemically with the whole family.

The aim of the project is to support primary schools to support families at crisis point. The collaboration between CYCA and the primary schools, is to offer key staff within the schools to receive CYCA’s systemic family support training.

This will give key staff the skills to support families that are identified or approach the school for help and support. CYCA acts as a scaffolding mechanism of support to the key staff working with the families.

The support that we offer the families is therapeutic support through our counselling services, play therapy, sand therapy and mentoring.

All schools receive an opportunity for parents and carers to attend CYCA’s accredited resilience course, this will give the families the tools and skills to face crisis’s in the future.

The pupils of the schools will receive CYCA’s superhero resilience training, so that the whole family have the key messages and use of language to help themselves now and in the future.

CYCA are currently working with five primary schools in Llanelli which are Stebonheath, Bigyn, Ysgol Penrhos, Ysgol Y Ffwrness and Bynea.

Schools will contribute a small fee for the collaboration, you can expect the following support from CYCA:

  • Four training sessions for the head and designated school staff
  • Training on CYCA’s assessment framework
  • Termly supervisions
  • Access to Tracy Pike MBE CEO and Lianna Davies Senior Manager for advice and guidance
  • Resilience training for parents which will take place in the school
  • Pupils will have superhero resilience training and this can be delivered in a variety of ways

Each family supported will have access to an array of support which includes:

  • Counselling for child and parent
  • Male and female mentors
  • Family support officer
  • 1-1 Resilience support
