While I was at Broomfields Childrens Burns Unit I noticed a poster on the wall for The Childrens Burns Club. They are a club that offers both young survivors and their families help in order for them to come to terms with not only the trauma of what has happened but also the altered body image.
“We organise fun activities including residential camps, days out, workshops, parties and encourage the benefits of peer support amongst members.This support helps rebuild self-esteem, confidence and expectations after a burn injury and along the way lasting friendships are made by the children and their families whilst giving mutual support to one another.”
I think this is a wonderful charity and they offer this club across many counties that include London, Essex, Surrey, Sussex, Kent, Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire.If you or any of your friends and family find yourself being affected by a child with burn injuries then this will definitely be a charity you should check out.
And if you would like to donate to the charity the details are on the FAQ
