Fluffy and Friends: Puppet Workshops

Helium’s puppet-making workshops for children living with chronic illness are an opportunity for children to come together and explore their illness in a fun and non-threatening environment with other children living with the same illness. The children explore story-making, characterisation and puppet play and put on a short performance for parents.

The workshops are also an opportunity for parents to share and learn from each other as their children interact.

'It was the best day me and (my child) have spent together in a long time.’ - Parent taking part in Fluffy and Friends workshop
