Welcome to the Caspari Foundation

We believe that all children who need help with development and learning should have access to affordable and appropriate support for their needs. We work towards this aim by supporting children with emotional, learning and behavioural difficulties to succeed in school.

Children, young people & families

Children, young people and familiesSometimes, through no fault of their own, children and young people can find their emotions get in the way of developing and learning. Caspari Foundation is a charity that helps children, young people and families to learn to cope with and overcome these barriers.

Please keep an eye on this space for details of Caspari Events and other meetings:

Around 30 current and former students of the Caspari MA and Advanced Diploma courses met for a reunion and to hear more about what is currently going on at Casapri. Jim Rose talked about changes at Caspari over recent years, including the transition from a university accredited MA award to the UKCP accredited Advanced Diploma course and the shift of the locus of delivery of educational psychotherapy from a 'clinic' based service to direct work in schools. This is exemplified in the exciting developments with the EPIC project. 
The current organisational review, funded by the Big Lottery Fund, is reaffirming Caspari's role as a training organisation; as a charity with a unique offering to schools and as a charity promoting the benefits of educational psychotherapy for children and young people across all professional boundaries.
Jim also outlined the challenges facing Caspari, primarily the need to re-engage with our membership and to encourage more people to commit to supporting the charity by increased involvement at Trustee and Committee levels.



Membership Survey 

All current and previous members of Caspari will shortly be contacted to ask if they will complete a short questionnaire to provide us with information about themselves and their current situation and to offer any suggestions for how our membership might be more involved in the work of Caspari. We will also be interested in any ideas for how Caspari might keep members better informed of developments within the charity.

PLEASE do complete the survey when it arrives and if you know of any former members please do let us know, so that they can be involved in this process. As was discussed at the recent meeting of course graduates and students, if we don't add appropriate people to our Trustee Board and Committees, then Casapri will struggle to fulfil its mission and those children, young people and parents who benefit from the work of educational psychotherapists will not receive the services they deserve.
