We know how tough the lock-down is on everyone, but even more so for our families, given the needs of children and adults living with Dravet Syndrome and the difficulties accessing support.
Our Family Support Manager and Dravet mum, Teresa Finch, is here to help. Whether you just want a friendly voice to chat to, need someone to listen whilst you off-load or could do with some practical assistance.
Whilst we are not able to give advice, we are here to listen, share from our own experiences and signpost to other places. Please do get in touch by calling 01246 912421 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Teresa is normally available weekdays from 10:30 and 15:30.
We want to say a huge thank you to National Lottery’s Coronavirus Community Fund, part of the Government’s £750m support package for charities, for providing DSUK with a £10,000 award, enabling us to provide families impacted by COVID-19 with dedicated emotional and practical support during these challenging times.
