About us

Beacons Play Therapy specialises in therapeutic play for clients of all ages. We work with children and adults who have emotional and behavioural difficulties or have suffered from an emotional trauma.

Play Therapy helps bring natural communication out with the inner child. Symbols have been used for centuries to communicate through language without uttering a single word. This concept is provided to us by Virginia Axline.

We provide a safe and nurturing environment where children and adults can express themselves freely. During the sessions we will support all people onto their own path for a natural and unmediated self-healing process through PLAY.

Further information

Our child protection policy

This is a statement of intent that demonstrates a commitment to safeguard children involved with us and keeping them from harm. The essential inclusions for a child protection policy are outlined below:

  • The welfare of the child is paramount
  • No child or group of children must be treated any less favourably than others in being able to access services which meet their particular needs
  • All children without exception have the right to protection from abuse regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexuality or beliefs
  • The policy is reviewed, approved and endorsed by the board of trustees annually or when legislation changes
  • Who the policy applies to (ie all trustees, staff and volunteers)
  • Children and parents are informed of the policy and procedures as appropriate
  • All concerns, and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously by staff and responded to appropriately - this may require a referral to children’s social care services, the independent Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) for allegations against staff, trustees and other volunteers, and in emergencies, the police
  • A commitment to safe recruitment, selection and vetting
  • Reference to principles, legislation and guidance that underpin the policy
  • Arrangements for policy and procedures review
  • Reference to all associated policies and procedures which promote children’s safety and welfare eg with regards to: health and safety, anti-bullying, protection of children online, and photography
  • All information will be treated strictly private and confidential and only passed to the appropriate person normally the CPO.

  All of Swale Home Education staff who have direct contact with children are vetted to the higest possible level. We do spot checks on the DBS files. We take Child safety very serious and follow a strict code of practice that is passed down to us from PTUK. All our staff are insured with Towergate PL insurance.
