Our Mission

We aim to enhance and enrich the lives of children and young adults around the world through art therapy.

We provide mental health support in disadvantaged parts of the world, to individuals who don’t have access to therapeutic services.

At the heart of Flourish Foundation lies the belief that art is a medium for growth and positive change. Art making has been found as an essential therapeutic activity that can help reduce symptoms of post-traumatic stress, regulate emotions and behaviour and help individuals make sense of their experiences.

Many of the young people we work with are survivors of human rights violations, war and neglect. Through art therapy we provide support by creating a safe, compassionate space with creative materials for the young people to be able to express themselves and their experiences. We are driven by a key set of values and objectives, which are intrinsic in helping us to achieve our mission:


To facilitate a creative outlet that fosters the individual’s skills and demonstrates their internal resilience.


To provide creative spaces that are non-judgemental and safe for free expression.


To support children and young people to increase confidence, self-esteem and a sense of self-worth.


To build upon and enhance the vital social skills that are essential for life development through modelling safe and trusting relationships.


To work across cultures in appropriate and respectful ways, remembering that we are learning from and with the individuals we are privileged to meet with.

Donate here to help children around the world who have no access to mental health support.
