FIF-Xtra stands for 'Family Innovation Fund Xtra' and has been funded by Essex County Council in response to the pandemic  We are among six organisations who are able to provide remote (online or by phone) coaching/mentoring support to children and families across Essex who are not already open to specialist or statutory teams. We can work with individuals or with the whole family. Places are limited and this funded support finishes at the end of March 2021. 

Violence and Vulnerability Unit Funded Mentoring
The VVU, in association with the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex, have funded us to provide remote (online or by phone) mentoring support to children and young people aged 12-16 across Essex, Southend and Thurrock who may be at risk of Child Criminal Exploitation (CCE). This is an early help offer for those who are not already working with Youth Offending or under the Criminal Justice System, designed to prevent escalating risks. This support is available until end of March 2021. 

YSG - Youth Service Commissioning Groups - Building Resilience
We are currently funded to deliver Building Resilience workshops across Castle Point and Basildon in secondary schools. If you work in a school outside of these areas and would like to explore this option for your setting, please get in touch with us.
