BEAM - The Children's Society - there is no need for an appointment!
Beam is run by The Children's Society. It is part of the new Bee-U Emotional Health & Wellbeing service in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin.
Beam is a drop-in service with open-access so there are no appointments. The service supports the emotional wellbeing of children and you are welcome to visit the drop-in service to see what it is like before bringing your child. If you think your child might benefit from the emotional support BEAM can offer, then contact Beam or drop-in at one of the sessions to discuss your concerns.
Beam provides low intensity therapeutic support to children and young people under 25, their parents, carers and professionals. Beam can give practical support and suggestions. Beam offer a variety of ways for young people and their families to access support. Drop in sessions, groups and workshops.
