We want to take our eating disorders services on the road to provide initial one-to-one face-to-face counselling and advice for people living in the rural areas of Derbyshire who struggle to access mainstream services often located in large towns and city centre locations.
Transport is a challenge in these areas, with 26 subsidised bus routes having been removed from Derbyshire this year alone, and NHS services either increasing the assess criteria or cutting services in Derbyshire which will impact more children, young people and adults living in our rural communities who will find it harder to access healthcare and preventative services meaning isolation will only increase.
We will take our award winning team On-the-Road if we can secure our £25,000.00 bid but we need to secure as many votes as possible against other worthy projects/campaigns to be in the chance of securing 1 of the 8 grants available. Last year’s winners secured votes between 8,250 and 25,250.
Vote for us now before Tuesday 20th November 2018 at https://www.avivacommunityfund.co.uk/voting/project/view/4-1148 and help us take First Steps Eating Disorders On-the-Road to Derbyshire Rural communities.
Thank you in advance
