Dandelion Time, a local children’s charity, are expanding to East Kent and will be opening their second branch in Ashford this November. Dandelion Time help children who are struggling with the eﬀects of trauma, abuse or neglect. Their therapeutic c approach is family based, embedded in nature with a range of activities that engage head, heart and hands. The charity has been based in West Farleigh since 2003, serving local families in Maidstone and the surrounding areas. Dandelion Time’s Ashford branch will be based in Bethersden’s local village Scout Hut and we will be running nature based activities in the field opposite. This nurturing outdoor environment allows children to build self‐belief, strengthen relationships and develop the skills and aspirations for a brighter future.
Initially Dandelion Time will be running sessions once a week, for a 4 hour period between 10am and 2pm. The team are really thrilled that they will soon be able to help children and families in the locality and wider Ashford area.
