A Year Of Work At Sick Kids Begins

 

This week marks the beginning of a whole year of work with Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity at the Sick Kids hospital.

We’ll be visiting 3 times a week to share the good vibes.

This is building on the work we have already begin doing with ECHC at Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).

Check out their Facebook page to see us in action:

‘ECHC’s Arts Programme began a new project at the RHSC today, collaborating with the wonderful Tinderbox Collective. Tinderbox musicians deliver sessions that aim to engage children and young people’s musical side to create something new – check out this fab song written by 9-year-old Ryan in ward 4.

Tinderbox Collective has also been working with patients in the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service at the Western General since last September, encouraging young people to express themselves through drumming, DJ-ing and songwriting. In #ChildrensMentalHealthWeek it’s a great opportunity to highlight the positive impact that music and creativity can have on the mental health of children and young people.’
