The new Children’s Emergency Department at Stepping Hill Hospital is in need of toys and activities to distract and calm the 25,000 children that they treat each year. The department sees children from 0-15 suffering from a variety of medical and surgical conditions, injuries and mental health crisis. Children attending the Emergency Department (ED) can find it a scary and unsettling experience and the wait for treatment long and boring. The ED team would like to make the waiting room bright and welcoming with the addition of an aquatic bubble tube and wall mounted activity boards. These items will help to alleviate fear by distraction and help pass the time waiting for treatments.

“This donation has enabled us to use more varied and useful therapeutic toys and games when working with children and young people with mental health difficulties, as well as using extra clinic rooms which are now more child-friendly. This has helped reduced anxiety about coming to CAMHS and meant that family therapy can be done. Both parents of a 10 year old boy can now attend with their 5 year old as the youngest child can play with our new resources in the waiting room or clinic space. The 10 year old benefited from therapeutic games about thoughts/feelings and we were also able to observe imaginative play for assessment.”
