The Hornchurch and Upminster Rotary Club are fundraising for First Step, Building Family Resilience.

Families need First Step at a moment of crisis, uncertainty and fear over the health, behaviour or development of their child. With little or no warning, they are thrust into a world they are simply not prepared for.  They suffer from a whole set of challenges, exacerbated by COVID-19, threatening the core of the family unit; self-imposed or imposed unintentionally by society. 
Through intensive support, initial assessment, one-to-one tailored support, family support sessions and peer support, families are helped to learn about their child's condition, a package of support for their young child, a development plan for the whole family and support with gaining the financial support through Disability Living Allowance and other essential benefits.
