Social Socks Charitable Trust has been running in the Manawatu since 2012 delivering a focused 7 week programme of one hour sessions to whole classrooms. The children use sock puppets as fun non-threatening way of teaching kids how to socially interact. Large hand puppets are used as the teachers, delivered by two trained counsellors/teachers/social workers and volunteers. Topics include building relationships, being unique, understanding and dealing with emotions, making friends, dealing with disappointments and our journey.

Schools are wanting this programme as they recognise the needs of their children but struggle to provide funding. It is making an incredible difference in so many children's and families lives.
