Support during Covid 19

We are incredibly proud of how Family Support Derbyshire has had a positive impact during Covid-19. Our support has continued throughout the lockdown, through safe, diversified methods as appropriate to government guidelines. In fact, we have actually increased the number of families to which we have provided much-needed help. We have reached out to all of the families on our waiting list and taken on new referrals too. We recognise the issues and difficulties faced by parents and have gone over and above to try to help.  Staff and Volunteers have kept in regular contact with parents and carers and the feedback we have received has been heartwarming. Donations and fundraising play a large part in us being able to deliver much-needed resources to children. Children having positive experiences and being engaged during the pandemic has been incredibly important.

We are always thinking about how best to meet the needs of our Families. Here are a few of the messages we have received from them so hopefully we are on the right track!……

“Thank you so much, so good to be able to talk things through, really appreciate all you’re doing."

“Thank you for the children’s learning package, it’s lovely."

“Knowing that Family Support Derbyshire is just a phone call away. Knowing that someone is in your corner, is very powerful!"

“Thank you so much for the activity pack, my son loved getting post of his own!"

“I would like to say that you and your team are amazing. You are so supportive and I feel so comfortable talking with you. I usually find that difficult, but I am so open with yourselves and I would not like you to do anything different. Stay as you are. You and your team are very helpful and I am so grateful. Thank you so much!"

“Wow, how great! We received a parcel for our son this morning, he was so excited!"
