Dandelion Time’s therapeutic programme is most suitable for children and young people aged 6-13 years and for whom experience of trauma is past rather than on-going.

Referred children and their carer(s)/parent(s) are invited to attend weekly half-day group sessions, for between 10 and 15 weeks, during weekdays in term time only.


Please ask a professional who knows your child/children best to contact us regarding a possible referral to Dandelion Time. This could be your child’s school SENCO or FLO, your Early Help Worker, Social Worker, GP, or other professional.


Before making a referral, please read our Referral Guide information regarding admissions criteria. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss the referral in advance.

As a charity, Dandelion Time requires a contribution towards the cost of each placement; please see our Referral Guide for more information. In some circumstances funding is also required to cover transport costs.

A copy of our referral form is available here. One form must be completed per child if more than one sibling is being referred. Once completed, please password protect the document and email it to

Please note that there is currently a waiting list for placements and Dandelion Time generally cannot offer urgent placements.

If you require any more information about making a referral, seeking funding, or the admissions process, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Our Admissions Coordinator can be reached on 01622 814 001 or via email at

Thank you for your interest in Dandelion Time; we look forward to hearing from you.
