Play therapy

We want every child to have the chance to play and every parent to feel confident about playing with their child – we don’t want illness to be a barrier to experiencing this simple pleasure. Each child that comes to us for care has an individual play plan. 

Our Playmakers visit families at home to carry out an assessment and then write up a tailored plan that helps them use play for fun, but also for reaching goals like helping a child’s development, or making something medical seem a less scary.

Every family receives a red spotty fabric bag containing specialist toys and a simple step-by-step guide and every member of a child’s Julia’s House team will be able to incorporate this play in their care sessions.
