Whippersnappers are funded by BBC Children in Need to provide a therapeutic setting for children aged 5 to 11 with additional needs. Buddy club gives children an opportunity to make new friends, interact with their peers and learn to express their emotions within a group setting. The group is open to children living in the borough of Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham and referrals can be made by parents, carers and social workers.
