08 Dec Stay Safe Team Ipsley
Over the break, it’s important that everyone in Team Ipsley knows how to stay happy, healthy and safe. As teachers are on holiday, we will not be monitoring the phone lines or emails. If you have an immediate safety concern, please contact 999. You might find the organisations below helpful if you need support:
HERE 2 HELP
Here2Help is a community action scheme, originally dedicated to helping those who needed support during the COVID-19 pandemic. They offer advice, support and help to a wide range of services across Worcestershire.
Are you worried about online sexual abuse or the way someone has been communicating online with you online? Make a report to one of CEOP’s Child Protection Advisors here.
READY STEADY WORCESTERSHIRE
The Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme offers free holiday provision to children in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) and vulnerable families during Easter, summer and Christmas school holidays.
The HAF Programme funding has been extended to 2023 and Ready Steady Worcestershire has partnered with holiday clubs, schools and activity providers all over the county to offer fun, action packed school holiday periods with all activities offering healthy snacks, lunches and enriching activities.
WORCESTERSHIRE VIRTUAL FAMILY HUB
Website: Worcestershire Virtual Family Hub
It is important that families know where to go and get help. We know that where to start or what to ask for can sometimes be a challenge. Worcestershire Virtual Family Hub have developed this page to give you a range of different types of resources that are available to you online, on the phone or face to face that you can access directly.
Kooth offers emotional and mental health support for children and young people aged between 11 – 24 years and is available up to 10pm every day. It is safe, free and confidential.
Worried that you or another child is not safe? You can contact Childline online or via the phone.
Website: Redditch Foodbank
“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”
We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
