Action for Children
We provide specialist support for children and young people aged 0-17 who are likely to present emotional and mental difficulties but do not meet the thresholds for more specialist services. Through early intervention we are able to build resilience and reduce the development of more serious emotional and mental health issues, better preparing children and young people for the challenges of life.
Issues that children and young people might be facing:
• Parental separation.
• Managing behaviour at home/school.
We can support through:
• 1-1 direct work.
• Family support.
• Group interventions.
• Digital offers.
• Evidence based programmes for children and parents.

Derbyshire Local Offer
The original ‘Derbyshire Local Offer’ website was developed with the help of parents, carers and their children and has been well-used as a source of information about a wide range of relevant services and support since it was launched in 2014.
Since then, changes in the way people prefer to search for information and the advance of social media mean we have reviewed the site, again using feedback from the people who use it.
The site features clearly marked sections, an improved search function by area, service or subject with an ability to filter results and direct links to various organisations’ social media accounts.
It also has other sections including information about free courses and training, lists of local support groups for parents, their other children, families and carers, details of leisure events, places to go and things to do plus support for professionals.
