Each month you will be helping a family in crisis like Sara’s

Sara is a single mum with three boys. Her youngest son Tommy has emerging SEND needs and is on the Autism pathway awaiting assessment. Sara had been struggling to manage Tommy’s behaviour at home, and this was impacting the whole household and her mental health. 

Sara was referred into Ruby’s by her Family Support worker. Using our listen, plan, do and review process we identified the families’ priorities and offered behaviour and sensory strategies and short breaks for Tommy in the mobile sensory bus. The Ruby’s approach of offering whole family support meant Sara was invited to Ruby’s lunch clubs and accepted counselling sessions, and following their young carers assessments Tommy’s big brothers started attending Siblings Club where they could have fun and make new friends. In addition, we used our strong links with local organisations to signpost the family to other specialist support which has helped to make life better for them all individually and as a family unit.

“Ruby’s have given me a lot of help and guidance. Since becoming involved with Ruby’s things are moving faster and I have more help.”

Join us today

Every year, we are reliant on financial support from our community to sustain our services. While individual donations can make an immediate difference to our work, they don’t provide the reliability we need to confidently plan for the future.

By receiving regular donations from Ruby’s Friends, we will be able to make long-term plans to expand and enhance our services to help the children and families we support. They will be able to rely on us, because we can rely on you.
