The Ahead Together Project is being delivered in Erewash and South Derbyshire by Home-Start Erewash. It aims to provide support for parents struggling with mental ill health with at least one child under 5 years old (exceptions may apply). The project has three strands that parents can be referred in to:
· Volunteer befrienders; the family would be matched to one of our trained volunteer befrienders, who would provide one to one support for 2-3 hours per week.
· Breathe programme; An eight week family centred programme providing support and advice around mindfulness techniques, relaxation, sleep hygiene etc.
· Remote support; Monthly phone call/facetime with a family co-ordinator, regular emails with advice on coping mechanisms and other support available.
