Why fundraise?

Family Support Derbyshire is responsible for raising all the funds to keep our vital family support service running.  We believe the best possible start in life for a child begins at home.  A nurturing, loving, stable family and home environment strongly determines a child’s future life chances.  Children whose parents are struggling to cope can miss out on the love, routine and support that are vital for their future.

  • 22.9% of familes in Derby are considered to be living in poverty
  • 2.3% of families are considered homeless, 50% higher than the UK average
  • 8.2% of children are raised by a lone parent
  • 9.8% of children under the age 16 suffer from mental health issues
Family Support Derbyshire depends heavily from support and donations from people like you to fund our work with children and families.  Everyone needs a little help sometime in their life… please help us to make a difference to a child’s life today!
