Lockdown has meant more family time together for some & less for others. We want to help people talk about the impact & rebuild family life

by Relate Chesterfield & N. Derbys in Chesterfield, England, United Kingdom

Covid 19 has put enormous stress on all of us.  Some families have had the anxiety of key workers continuing to work, others have had the worry of being furloughed and not knowing if there will be a job to return to.  As we move into the 'new normal' we want to raise funds to be able to support families as schools return and anxiety inevitably increases. All money raised will be used to offer either family or young people's counselling (age 11-18) to people in our local community (Chesterfield, North Derbyshire and Sheffield) free of charge.  This will offer a safe and confidential space for families to talk about the way Covid 19 has impacted their lives and to support them as we transition into the next stage of the pandemic and the easing of lockdown restrictions.

We have a team of experienced counsellors ready to offer support for a range of issues including mental health, bereavement, relationship breakdown, school pressures, domestic abuse to name just a few.  As a result of Covid 19 we are now offering our full service via telephone and webcam until it is safe and appropriate to return to a face to face service.

Let's make 'Helping families talk about the impact of Covid-19' happen
