Freedom Foundation is an organisation that offers children and young people
regardless of race or gender, the opportunity to explore their individuality and
learn to appreciate their self-worth.
We believe that children are becoming more aware of their body image at a very young age. Hours spent on social media sites and apps have contributed to this. Young people are continually shown unrealistic images of what a perfect figure or face is which has left many children with a number of anxieties and issues that they now have to deal with on a daily basis. Bullying and self-harming are becoming a regular occurrence in our schools today, which is enhanced by the number of people sharing information via social media amongst their peers.
- The age of the “Selfie” and use of photographic filters, has changed how we value ourselves, and we believe it is now the time to address these problems head on.
- Hours spent on social media have left many young people without the ability to communicate vocally, interact socially, which has impacted on their mental health and emotional wellbeing.
We aim to expand the minds of young people through a series of creative, thought provoking sessions that unlock their hidden talents and nurture their creative individuality through our development programmes.
