Clear Sky strive to forge strong partnerships with organisations who share our rainbow values and our passion to support children’s mental health.

Clear Sky is proud to work in partnership with UK based charity big toes little toes to deliver accredited training to professional practitioners, providing attachment programme skills to work with parents, carers and children from primary age up to teens.

This partnership has been built on shared charitable aims to reach as many children and families as possible with the power of play and attachment, to support emotional and mental wellbeing. We are passionate about supporting parents and carers to be the best they can be through strengthening early relationships and maximising child outcomes. Our partnership work is based on the latest family friendly research. We aim to translate rigorous scientific findings into fun, playful and respectful approaches for children and families.

The Be the Jellyfish programme was created in 2014 by experienced primary school teachers’ Lucy Cree and Sarah Brogden. It equips educational professionals with a step-by-step guide and a set of resources to support the social and emotional wellbeing of children in their care. Where there is a higher level of need these can be used alongside tailored therapeutic support from a Clear Sky Therapist. Both organisations offer creative outlets and complementary ways of working to enhance children’s emotional wellbeing across the spectrum of mental health, with Jellyfish resources being used for those with low level needs and Clear Sky offering specialist support for children who are struggling with emotional and behavioural difficulties.

Be the Jellyfish resources such as Jellyfish cards, colouring sheets and workbooks are available to purchase at our Emotional Regulation & Behaviour Support training. They offer practical tools to work through with children to embed the theory and practice the skills learnt in training. They can also be used as an effective tool for identifying children who require further support.

The Faraway Gang is a children’s knitwear brand with a conscience.

Sally Jackson had been a knitwear designer for over 15 years working for some of the UK’s most recognisable brands before she decided to launch her own high end kids brand in 2017. This unisex knitwear brand is for children aged 4-7 years old and offers fun, contemporary and colourful designs, with a nod towards British heritage. The Faraway Gang brand believes in offering choice and allowing children to express themselves through clothes. The true essence of the brand comes from playtime and imagination; the inspiration from nature and playful creativity. 

The brand is yet to launch online, but there is already quite a buzz of anticipation with them being shortlisted as a finalist in the Rising Star Award at Bubble London, hailed as Brand to watch by the World Global Style Network and in the running for the Junior Style Awards which has yet to be judged!

With this shared passion for playfulness and encouraging children’s individuality, creativity and expression, it was clear that Clear Sky and The Faraway Gang have many complementary beliefs and values about what a happy and healthy childhood looks like. Furthermore, The Faraway Gang wanted to ensure that they followed this through to build a brand of substance. So for every garment sold they are donating £1 to Clear Sky to enable us to help more primary school children to enjoy a happy and healthy lives.
