About the day

Our Family Day is an invaluable online event for children and young people living with a mark, scar or condition that makes them look different and is open to all the family! There will be mini sessions looking at building confidence, tips on feeling less anxious, advice on how to handle awkward social situations, as well as the opportunity to listen to guest speakers and a chance to win some fantastic prizes in our family-friendly scavenger hunt.

You can dip in and out of sessions throughout the day. Here are just some of the sessions on offer:

  • What makes a good friendship? (Aimed at 8 to 12 year olds)
  • How do I describe my visible difference? (Aimed at 12 to 18 year olds)
  • How to cope with tricky social situations? (Aimed at 12 to 18 year olds)
  • Relaxation and mindfulness session (For all)
  • Family scavenger hunt with prizes (For all)

There will also be guest speakers, including one of our young champions and we are delighted to have Andrea Chatten from Unravel, an expert practitioner with over 30 years’ experience of providing emotional support to children and young people, talking about how to get the most out of liaising with school and teachers.

To make sure everyone feels comfortable, we will be capping attendance at around 20 people.
