Letter from Jay Vaughan to familiesPosted in: News
Dear families, parents, children and young people,
I hope you are all keeping well and safe.
The advice on managing the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation is changing daily, and the most important consideration is of course the health and wellbeing of us all! With this in mind the whole team at Family Futures has been thinking about how we can continue to support you all.
Our aim as an agency is to ensure that we continue to provide you with support and to ensure that we survive as an agency so we can provide a service post this crisis.
We have been working out an individual support plan for each family in treatment at Family Futures and also for families who had or are about to have an assessment. We will be offering your support plan remotely, for instance via virtual forums. We are asking you to agree to this support programme as the best way forward, in these unprecedented times, to ensure we offer continued support to your family through this challenging time and to help ensure Family Futures is still here for you after this crisis. I am not sure if all of you are aware we are a small, not for profit organisation with no grant funding, charitable funding or government funding underpinning us so we cover our costs each month by the income we generate by providing assessment, therapy and so on.
We are also planning to keep posting online ideas for families about activities they can do at home and our advice line service will still be running to support you at this time.
Keep safe all and keep in touch.
With hugs from all at Family Futures or rather elbow bumps for now!
Jay Vaughan, Registered Manager and CEO
