Funding Cuts Affecting Wirral Families

Posted on May 17, 2017 - News, The Hub

From the 1st of April we have had cuts to some of our funding streams.

As an organisation we have worked tirelessly throughout the year to secure funding but have been unsuccessful. It has been an extremely difficult and worrying time; we have tried our best to limit the impact this would have on families. Unfortunately the cuts will mean a reduction in the number of ‘Little Bees’ groups we are able to offer. The group supports young children with social and communication difficulties, providing vital early intervention and enables parents to receive respite and peer support.

If you are interested in raising funds for our groups please contact the Hub on 0151 608 8288

Quotes from parents

‘this group is a lifeline to my family and we can’t imagine not coming every week’

‘The support provided by Home-Start Wirral came at a time when I was sinking with the pressure of coping with my son’s behaviour and communication difficulties. I do not know where we would be without the Little bees group. To think future children and parents will be unable to access this support is heartbreaking’

‘I am so thankful for the support Home-Start Wirral have given to my child and family. I am praying funding is secured in the future so that families like mine can get the right support to enable their child to achieve’

‘This group is so important to me, the opportunity to meet other families and speak about my concerns has helped me so much. We will really miss everything about the group’
