About us

Bear Force

Bear Force encourages children to express their feelings from a young age helping to build the foundations for positive mental health as they get older.

Emotional problems in older children and young adults, can often stem from childhood experiences with reactions presenting themselves many years later. Our work looks to support children as young as 3 years and provides them with tools to help them right through their formative years.

How can you help

How you can help


Donating to the charity Bear Force can have a profound impact on the well-being of young children. Here are a few reasons why supporting this cause is important.

Sponsorship/Branding Opportunities

Your sponsorship can make a genuine difference to children’s lives, from sponsoring Bear Buddies packs and Buddy Benches for schools, to a local teddy bear’s picnic, there is no end to the different ways you can work with us.

Involve your school - Bear Buddies

All children love certificates and badges, and our free Bear Force Buddies certificates can be earned by simply learning about the importance of talking when they feel sad or are worried. Children are also encouraged to look out for other children who they think might be feeling sad too.

Hold a Teddy Bears Picnic

People young and old love teddy bears, and what a perfect excuse for combining a fun picnic with raising funds for an incredible charity. And remember, everyone has to bring their teddy bear!

Teddy Bears Picnics can be held in schools too. Why not read the book as part of the picnic and award pupils with their own Bear Buddies Certificates.

Buy the book

Bear Force is a delightful story that can be easily read by children and become a delightful addition to any child’s book collection.

It can also be used to provide an opportunity for children to create their own ideas for AB’s adventures or explore the bear’s possible emotions as well as their own, using separate text within its pages.
