Local families to receive support

26th May 2017

Home-Start Essex has received £15,000 from the Chrysalis Fund towards their ‘Moving on up Together’ project.

This is a weekly group for parents who are socially isolated and struggle with low self-esteem and mood. A creche is provided which gives parents an opportunity for confidential group discussion.

The sessions also take an holistic approach, with a focus on art therapy, relaxation techniques, healthy eating advice and exercise.

ECF currently manages 140 named funds, all with different criteria. We are always pleased to discuss an application in advance of submission.  Please call the grants team on 01245 356018 or to apply, click here.
