Children’s mental wellness game developer, Book of Beasties, has committed to providing all schools in the UK with free remote-learning mental health support.
The London-based start-up is aiming to reach over six million primary aged children by donating its remote wellness kit and access to accompanying CPD training to the 20,000 plus primary schools in the UK.
This new incentive is part of the Playful Minds campaign, which is calling on the Government to increase funding for playful mental health provision for schools and parents.
“With this incentive we hope to highlight the dire need for better mental health support in schools and put pressure on those who can make a difference to do so,” said Phil Tottman, CEO and co-founder of Book of Beasties.
“We are a small company, but our primary focus is to improve the wellbeing of children nationwide, especially following such an adverse year. If that means giving away our resources so people can benefit from them then so be it. We couldn’t be more honoured to be helping in such a way.”
Any schools or parents who are interested in receiving a copy of the Remote Wellness Kit are welcome to contact Book of Beasties on email@example.com.
