The past 12 months have been undeniably hard for us all and have affected everyone in very real and challenging ways, but imagine if your support network of carers and support groups were all taken away with a moment’s notice?
For the families we support with vulnerable children this has been the tough reality. Charlie House has worked hard to continue to be there every step of the way providing access to online support, virtual activities for families and siblings and interactive ways for everyone to re-connect and most importantly, keep in regular contact.
To enable us to continue our work and to support babies, children and young people with complex disabilities and life-limiting conditions and their families, please donate £10 today if you can: https://www.charliehouse.org.uk/support-us/ways-to-give/donate/
Supported local mum Joanne Jamieson shared her thoughts with us:
“I don’t think any of us appreciated just how much it meant to have our support network of carers, support groups and friends to get us through life, until we had it taken away.
It's not always taking part and calling for support, it's just knowing that it's there. Our daughter Mollie has had a lot of support from Leigh, the Charlie House Children & Family Support Manager, and now when she is having a difficult time we ask her in terms of whether she needs just a hug, or to talk to Leigh. In her mind it lets her work out whether it's a big deal or a small deal.
For families like ours, that kind of support is a lifeline.”
In these uncertain times we are incredibly grateful of your support, it is support from donors like you that makes this vital support work and lifeline possible for local families.
Thank you – Team Charlie House
