Comfort blankets for CAMS

Members of SI Hallamshire have been busy knitting comfort blankets for CAMS. CAMS is the Sheffield Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service. This service treats children and young people with a range of difficulties which seriously impact their mental health and emotional well-being. The comfort blankets were donated to the Becton Centre, which is a residential centre for children and young adults up to the age of eighteen with serious and complex mental health issues. The centre also incorporates a school where the young people are able to continue their education.

The young people are able to choose a blanket for their bed, which they then take home when they leave the centre. The blankets provide a welcome injection of colour and homeliness as some of the young people stay at the Becton centre for several months.
