The Rotary Club of Derby Mercia has donated £1,000 so that more young people and families supported by Safe and Sound can receive special recognition and validation of their recovery journey.

Safe and Sound has worked with Derby-based personalised gift company Colleague Box to create a bespoke ‘Hope Box’ for local young people and families who they work with.

Each Hope Box, which cost £20, is filled with calming activities, treats and positivity messages.

Safe and Sound supports children and young people across Derbyshire who are victims of or at risk of child exploitation including online grooming, sexual exploitation, County Lines, trafficking, modern slavery and radicalisation.

The team also supports families and raises public awareness across local communities about the dangers facing young people and the support available.

Chief executive Tracy Harrison said: “The Hope Boxes carry an important message to our young people and their families that they are not alone and are something that they can keep referring to and take comfort from in dark times.

“We have an ongoing appeal for businesses, individuals and organisations to effectively sponsor a young person or family member whose lives have been affected by child exploitation and I am blown away by the generosity of the members of Rotary Club of Derby Mercia.”
