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.

The Helen North Grant


The Caspari Foundation has recently received a very generous grant of £5,050 from one of its members. The donation is made in memory of a close family member, Helen North, who died of cancer in December 2017, aged 46.

The grant will be used by Caspari to provide 1:1 Educational Psychotherapy to 2 Islington children whose learning has been impeded by the bereavement of a close family member.

We are extremely grateful to the donor for their support. Thank you from everyone at the Caspari Foundation.
