Trauma teddies to help children
Students at Dundee University have teamed up with Police Scotland and a national charity to support children caught up in traumatic situations.
Illustrators from the university’s Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (DJCAD) have created an activity book which will be distributed to youngsters caught in the midst of emergency incidents.
The book, which features puzzles, colouring-in and games, was developed entirely by DJCAD illustration undergraduates and will be carried by emergency service personnel throughout Tayside.
It was developed with the help of Police Scotland and staff at charity Children 1st.
The books will be distributed with knitted trauma teddies, made by members of the public.
