What we’ve been up to

table set up for men's mental health event

It’s been a busy time for us here at Family First. We’ve done lots of networking including attending:

The Connect Conference  Рa chance for staff from statutory services and clinicians to come alongside the VCFSE sector to improve the health and wellbeing of our communities.

The Early Years Showcase Event – we celebrated and shared updates in the world of Early Years. Some great networking made and access to lots of new resources to share with families.

Job Centre volunteer fair – this was a really busy event held at the Town Hall in Ipswich for the public to find out what volunteering opportunities are available.

Men’s Mental Health Day Event – this event at The Hold was a combination of stalls, workshops which challenged our thinking around men’s mental health.

We are also keeping our skills and knowledge up to date. Service Lead, Sarah, attended a fantastic Designated Safeguarding Lead Training where she refreshed her knowledge and was updated on the latest new resources.

As a team, we are attending a Mental Health First Aid course on Monday 27th November which was kindly funded by MANUP?

Lots more planned for the New Year. Watch this space…….
