CoVID-19 Update from hopespring
Bringing hope in a time of uncertainty, helping those who cannot help themselves
Now, more than ever, we are committed to looking after the vulnerable young people in our city and region. During this crisis, it is crucial that our young people are still able to access the services that keep them safeguarded and help them thrive. Our staff are working very hard and continue to provide our services.
We have taken the measures necessary to ensure our provisions are up and running: from our two therapeutic schools that service vulnerable students, to the 24/7 staffed Mother & Baby unit, and providing a weekly food shop for young care leavers.
hopespring Education therapeutic schools are still open thanks to our team who are working hard to keep life as regular as possible for the vulnerable young people attending our schools.
hopespring staff are on the front line, providing students with the education and support they need during this difficult time.
Mother and Baby Supported Accommodation
Being in lockdown with little freedom and minimal entertainment can be a real challenge for young mothers and their babies. That’s why in our Mother and Baby Supported Accommodation we are working hard and continue to provide our services. We take strict measures to ensure the safety of both residents and staff during this health crisis, making sure that our young mums are well looked after and supported.
During this time we’ve seen unprecedented demand for placements from social services across the region with mothers in extremely challenging situations including domestic violence, homelessness and suicide. We aim to move very soon into a larger more diverse premises to meet the ongoing need.
Young Care Leavers
Our young care leavers are majorly affected by the circumstances we find ourselves in.
Our amazing team at hopespring provide over 80kg per week of essential groceries to our Next Steps team.
