- Information and advice
Our Northern Family Support Hub team - Claire, Fiona, John, Natasha, Paula and our fab administrator Judith have engaged with 142 families in March and 125 in April.
We have been providing telephone support, checking in with all families referred and having conversations about their needs. We have been accessing the support services best suited to the specific needs of the families and signposting on to services who work closely with us through our hub partnerships.
During these unusual and difficult times the Northern FS Hubs have also been able to help a number of families through our Action For Children Emergency Coronavirus Fund to enable the purchase of essential items required including food, electricity, heating oil and outdoor toys and crafts given children are currently at home on a full-time basis.
We are also maintaining close relationships with foodbanks and the delivery of goods to families in need.
