Warm welcome for local families

Share this post:

Safe and Sound has teamed up with EMA Training to offer sessions for the families the specialist child exploitation charity supports.

The Warm Welcome’ support programme sees the charity provide hot meals, energy and food vouchers, family activities, as well as support and advice sessions every Friday until the end of March.

The sessions are being hosted by apprenticeships provider EMA Training, in Siddals Road.

The support is being made possible thanks to funding from the Government’s Household Support Fund, administered through Derby City Council and Derby Communication Action.

Safe and Sound chief executive Tracy Harrison said: “The sessions will give our families a welcome break to have a hot meal together, speak directly to our team about further support they need and enjoy activities together which are often a welcome break from the traumas and pressures they face.”

Tracey Mosley, chief executive of EMA Training, said: “Positive collaborations are an important part of the work we do to support young people and adults into apprenticeships to meet businesses’ growth plans.

“I’m therefore delighted to be working with Safe and Sound to host these warm welcome sessions.”
