Counselling Care: Skye and Lochalsh (CCSL) are delighted to have received a grant from Calmac to purchase “play therapy boxes” for primary schools across Skye. There is no doubt that the pandemic has had a significant impact on the mental health and well-being of local children and young people.  The pressures of lockdown, home schooling and not being able to see or meet up with family and friends, have left many local children feeling anxious, stressed and unable to cope with the daily challenges they face. Throughout this very difficult time CCSL has always been there, providing a much-needed professional local counselling service to all of the children and young people who needed our help.
