ALFIE’S FAMILY SUPPORT PACKAGES – NOW AVAILABLE!
As the effects of the Coronavirus continues to sweep across the country, Embrace has launched new services for children and young people harmed by serious crime, of whatever type.
Alfie’s family support packages are now available for children and young people harmed by crime and who are now living in families who have lost income as a result of the virus.
Referrals are invited from our police partners – Family Liaison Officers, Victims and Witnesses Hubs and Sexual Abuse Referral Centres.
We’ll make an initial assessment for the support requested. Once approved each child will have the option to pick 1 Essential, 1 Educational and 1 Entertainment item from our in house toy selection or from Alfie’s Hardship Fund Wishlist
Once a referral has been made we’ll verify and confirm your nomination, contacting the family directly for the list of items they would like included in their family support package.
